A line that we call decency

I drew a line,

Called decency,

To set the limits of what I’d accept to be said to me…

 

If truth be told,

If words be true,

I drew that line when I heard

What was said to you…

 

And I know that some friends might say

That I’ve become that awful thing we call

“Politically Correct”

You can be sure that’s not the truth

I’ve just discovered there are some things

I must reject..

I’m not afraid to curse or swear,

To tell a joke, or making fun

If it’s all done

With love or just respect…

But then again, I’m not the one

That put myself up as someone

You might elect…

 

I drew a line,

So you would know that

You weren’t alone

No matter what,  there was always

You and me…

 

I drew a line

 

I’m not the first

To draw that line, the line that we call

Decency..

 

So lets not build a wall, let’s draw a line

A line that we’ll call sanity..

It’s a  line that no one should cross,

Because when they do, they have lost…

Humanity.
