from day to day
from a day
Remember there a good time when we thought “Reader's digest.
Was high literature, the teller of the truth?
When I was propagandist luring us with fine words
When we got older we learned and these days even the Guardian
follows a political policy skirting the truth.
There are the lie and the truth, but convention stops us from telling
anyone how it was.
I wrote a story of sea life and young men the story was met
pith d deadly silence because I used the language of a time gone
when a whore was not a sex-worker.
People feel offended when met with untarnished truth,
write about the green sea and not of mass- the murder of old people
An editor wrote me along letter of refusal when to simple
words like “fuck off “would be better and less insulting.
But that is the way it is better to be kind than truthful.
