A List of Forbidden Words

A List of Forbidden Words

By Elton Camp

Profanity-filled writing I truly hate
But mindless censorship also berate

The same word can mean many things
From this, foolish action often springs

Any such lists, context cannot include
So legitimate usage they may exclude

“Bastard” is in history and the Bible
To forbid its use, these lists are liable

And “*****” is also a female canine
But the use of this word isn’t fine

A “hoe” is used to chop down a weed
To forbid its use there isn’t any need

An innocuous write such as this
Those websites are certain to diss
