There has been lots of talk

About political correctness,

I've heard the hurtful cries

And how they sound.

There is always someone 

Who has skin way too thin

And plenty of the mouthy bigots

To go around.

 

In a land where freedom of speech

Is a written right

And where freedom of persecution

Is validity,

Then it seems to me

The lack of mutual respect

Has driven people's actions

To stupidity.
