Hush Yourself

Mired in perpetual outrage
the mind of convention is conceited
for rage is not the way of the sage
but just a brain, of decency, depleted.

Oh, we are all very dysfunctional
but I hesitate to call it sin
when it is work just to be punctual
about when our labors begin.

And it is easy to lapse into thinking
that ours is the only duress,
or that the apocalypse is brinking
because a dude walked by...wearing a dress.

     So, please, do not speak of cultural wars,
     It only confirms us as bigotry's whores!
