swearwords in literature

Swear words in Literature 

A couple walking along the road, he has got a folded umbrella
she carries a parasol. It begins to rain he opens the umbrella
 and they walk on towards the plateau. Rain has stopped sun 
shines, she opens the parasol, a playful wind comes grabs it, 
throws the parasol up in the air and broken it falls amongst rocks. 
The sun is fierce and they suffer much before they reach a tree 
of wisdom on the highland – the only one- and seek shelter in
its cooling shadow and green leaves.
We have suffered, the couple moan, the tree that has books 
sheltering in its crown, literature that seek forgiveness for ever 
have being published; full of bland, polite words and not given 
wit and humour by their creators, fall down as the tree shakes 
its massive crown in disbelief and says” Why the **** didn´t 
you open the umbrella?”
