CORRECTNESS

 

 

CORRECTNESS

(Presented in Senryu Format) 

 

 

Wild of opinion

Perverse, infuriating

Intolerant views.

 

 

Then up pop the prudes:

‘Ooh did you hear what he said?

Ooh you can’t say that!’

 

 

Each word now spoken

Wrapped up tight in bland blankets

Constraining free speech.
