Believe in the Worst of All Four-Letter Words

Believe in Love, for Love can conquer all-- Excepting, to be sure, all biases, Since you love your own baby more than mine, While loving more your furry baby still; Believe in Love, though Love is prejudiced, As you prefer your spouse to each best friend, The sex you are "inside," its leanings yet, Together with your hundred shades of grey; Believe in Love, in spite of Love's false face, For ever Love's true heart desires its skin, Its Brother Klan, its Father--land and god-- With too, of course, its one true faith, football; Believe in Love, that genocidist fine, Who bacon loves as much as its own kind, And Love, no hypocrite, takes here this knife To slice each pig itself or any kin. January 8, 2022 Blank Verse (Iambic Pentameter)
