Where the Boys Are

Congratulations Florida
on becoming
the next state

to be bullied by peer pressure
into doing
what all the cool states are doing

(and what the hipsters
will soon make fun of).

As if Florida
weren't the butt of jokes already

now you have legal Cubans
legal gay people
and legal gay Cubans.

It's almost enough to make
former Florida Governor Jeb Bush

end his 2016
presidential campaign.

He said
he respected the state's ruling
despite his own disagreement

but come on
does that sound like
any Republican we know?
