Politics & Religion
Were never meant for polite society
My parents taught me.
But polite society doesn't exist
At least in this day and age.
Now and again vulgarities show
Marring perfect plans
How can such a vulgar society
Pretend it’s polite
When a man,
Whose vulgarity landed him fame,
Gets elected a leader?
The society that gave him power
Suddenly puts on airs.
He’s so awful they cry
Whenever he speaks.
Before they were mocking
Now they’re rioting
Not even giving anyone a chance.
For polite society was replaced long ago
By social media and opinionated egos.
Nobody will stop to consider
That maybe society’s vulgar
And should be toned down.
This is the age of no reasoning
Of extreme thoughts and feelings
Of being the center of attention.
Can we hold civil conversations
About politics and religion?
For the topics never were meant for
