Politically Correct
by  Barry S. Maltese

Where is this world now heading
when you must first be Politically correct
Everyone watches every word
for any sign of disrespect

They examine each sentence word for word
for some hidden negative meaning
Not a single thought could ever survive
when put under such a tight screening

No matter what  race, color, or creed
we all seem to exist on the edge
Just waiting for that one opportunity
an excuse to push off of that ledge

Why don't we just try working together
giving the benefit of the doubt
And instead of looking  for a reason to fight
just try to work these things out

If we can all try harder to understand
without looking for that one thing wrong
We would each stop seeing the differences
and find a common reason to belong
