hard to believe hard to fathom
California once said “whites only marry whites”
but so did the other back woods cracker states still living
int the Civil War past
California was the first to get rid of this shame
this crazy idea
that the color of your skin you are born with
limits who you can love
Andrea Perez met Sylvester Davis
they worked together in LA
fell in love
applied for a license to get hitched
Sharp said “NO”
Sharp, being a good Christian said you couldn’t
commit this kind of sin
being good Catholics Andrea and Sly didn’t want to live in sin
what to do?
what to do about this horrible sin?
Sin? Why that’s the government’s department!
Let the California Supremes decide
and decide they did
“Let’s marry! Hell, let ’em all marry”
(except homosexuals until lately)
