WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE POETRY

Fellow writers,
I implore us —
It’s time that we be
More decorous.

I don’t mean to
Be a censor,
But we must be
Less intense, or

Readers will grow
Tired of us an’
Then we really
Will be cussin’ —

So, forego frickin’
Words that shame us,
And stop being an effin’
Ignoramus.

    But there already is such a room: the INTERCOURSE room. Where else is God’s name taken in vain so much? O GOD!!!

    I certainly take you at your word, Don (but I’m not so sure about Dr. Don).
