Nowadays our talk
Has gotten “soooo” p.c.,
Real understanding
Is not
Real “e-a-s-y”!

So “laughing talk”
Rules the day -
Words are couched
In a nonsensical laugh -
“Taking a stab”
At clarity.
Say nothing unless
It elicits a “chuckle” -
(Even if it is of a dubious sort)!
That’s how
We now talk and report.

O - woe is me!
