A Knotty Issue

A bit of explaining is in order: The Poetry Bus is a weekly challenge organized by the blog Total Feckin Eejit. Each week it's hosted by a different person who chooses the challenge for us to write about. This week, the host is the band The Watercats who present us with the following challenge:

POETRY BUS! THE CHALLENGE IS JUST THE BEGINNING!

So here you go folks. Despite Eejit's panic that we might have forgotten that we were driving this week, (we remembered all along honest),  here we are. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it it thus.

1: PROTEST
2: IN A FOUR LINE POEM
3: WITH A RHYME THAT HAS A RHYTHM SUCH AS THUS;

     dum dum dunm dum dum dee dum
     dum de dum de dum dee dum
     dum de dum de dum dee dee
     dum de dum de dum de dee.

(or something).

 So, here is my effort:

Marriage is more than religious
It grants status quite litigious
Legalize knots that are tied
From groom to groom and bride to bride!
