Ode to the Speakers
Some people, they use "honesty" As an excuse to be obscene. You have a right to speak your mind, But that's no reason to be mean. There are times one must speak plainly; Other times, be roundabout. Hit too hard and you risk making Those around you shut you out. But when the audience appears Self-righteous or even dense, Understandable frustration Makes the situation tense. Please breathe and keep the high ground; Choose your words and weapons well. While many may not listen In a few... you'll ring a bell.
