PC Me
(9/1/2020)


I have
found
silence
to be my
best
option

because
no matter
what
I say

no matter
the tone

no matter
the careful

deliberate

delivery

I am
very likely
to offend
someone

my most
sincere attempt
at flattery
may end
in contentious
argument

so I
nod

I shake

I smile

I frown

“asshole”

they say
to my back
as I leave

better
than bigot

racist

sexist

fascist

atheist

socialist

communist

homophobe

hate monger

in these
uncertain times
I’ll take asshole
any day

fuck them

fuck them
all

if they'll
only accept
a joke
