Potty Mouth

He can curse up a storm
make a sailor blush
Foul blue language
spewed out in a gush
Could strip paint clean
off a battleship
Exponentially worse if
you give him any lip
Rambling in sincerity's guise
but his worst 4-letter words
are all his LIES

My poem was partially inspired by a phrase I would hear from time to time as I was growing up. "He's a potty mouth and he needs to have it cleaned out with soap." I can assure  you the repeated uttering of that phrase wasn't directed towards me as it took only one time to put me on the straight and narrow!  Unfortunately, more and more of society's role models today are potty mouths.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
