Offensive Hidden Messages
by Andres Diaz ©2021

Can’t you see the words?

Offensively obvious

Could anyone be so crass

Keep pushing boundaries

Should this poem be banned?

How do we judge it offensive?

Is it truly poetry or wretched filth?

Tomorrow may judge it righteous

But today we find it loathsome

Or will we lose this moral fight

No one knows the answers

Except those who read down

Regarding letters placed first

Those who see will decide

Instead of those that cannot

Thousands of words deemed bad

Thousands more deemed good

Ignorant people choose for us

Everyone must obey

Such is the state of the world.
