Profanity

Author:

Yenaros' mix of lyricism, detail, and style is a dangerous poetic force to be reckoned with.

Profanity

I don’t understand why people

Have to curse so much.

They say that no one’s listening to me

So, why do I rehearse so much?


I practice these lines

Because people don’t

Find the time

To study the reasons

Why

We speak out of character.

They think that it’s fine.


Calling someone a female dog

Is out of line.

Now women are calling

Each other the same word for

Fun.

Saying it’s cool.

That’s a lie.


These arguments turn into

A battle of who’s the most

Profane.

No points are ever made, just

Empty words being thrown around

The room.


There’s sunshine in the rain.


They say they don’t really mean it,

Yet it happens.

They don’t see it.

We’re always looking for

Something else to blame.


So be it.
