casts the good to the floor
"Not bad for...
a lefty, a drop-out, a chub, a whore"
Such words we abhor
Is affirmation SUCH a chore?
Words that ring in our core
cut, jab, wound, and score
Please, we beg you, we IMPLORE,
why can't you try for
peace and rapport?
You'd think we'd have learned not to ask any more
BANG! we're out the back door
it was that or fight a losing war
hurl stones we don't want to be responsible for
But I guess for now we just ignore
And look elsewhere for words that restore
