Politically Correct

Daily Prompt: P.C.

Is political correctness a useful concept, or does it stifle honest discussion? 

Photographers, artists, poets: show us USEFUL.

Politically Correct

The moral censors
would have you think
that by changing
your
language
you’ll overcome
your prejudice
but
you’ll find
a new censor’s faction
not worried
now
about
nudity or sex
(well not much)
but your speech
searching you out
to see
if you say the proper
words
so as not to offend:
the foreigners,
the farmers,
the handicapped,
the homosexuals,
women
men
blacks, whites greens, yellows
and country fowl!
Plain spoken speech
replaced by
new speak
permitting
the grammar Gestapo
to do his duty:
snuff out your
fire
with convoluted
ridiculous
Fluff!

What would be more useful
is an inner change
not a new Moralizing
word game
that superficially
tries to hide
the pettiness
of clods with
feelings of superiority.
