Step Lightly

A poem about the Political Correctness "dance"

Step lightly, this is but a dance
Be careful, we need to be PC
What was that new term, perchance?
The old one was offensive, maybe

We need to create new language
Give folks greater revere
The guy who collects the garbage
Is now the sanitation engineer

The criminal is the victim
The real victim doesn't always win
The courts and the penal system
Step lightly; sometimes give in

I don't know if I like the steps
Of this dance; I say politely
Need dialog 'tween Dems & Reps
What say you? Step lightly
