"Now let the turtle and the dove,
Let the lion and the lamb,
Let the owl and wolf and ram embrace
Across the countryside.
Fur and feathers, Makin' love;
Paws and claws and jaws and beaks,
Let the song go on for weeks and weeks,
To bless this boy and bless this bride."

"Instead of rooting for these star-crossed lovers to overcome the odds and unite their people I found myself wondering if it was even ethical or right for a lizard-man and a dragonfly-lady to knock boots. Should people from different species get married or have sex?
