Does It Matter?

Inspired by George Osborne, with apologies to Siegfried Sassoon

"Does It Matter?"

Does it matter?—that you can’t be wed?—
For people will always be kind,
And you need not show that you mind
Making do with your drab civil partnership
While straight folks get married instead.

Does it matter?—not having a vote?—
Some people were just born to rule,
And you might have elected a fool;
Democracy’s way overrated,
So please don’t start rocking the boat.
