Everything's Offensive

Offensive is a common word,
And used a little much.
Some will use it for a crutch,
For every little thing they heard,
And then speak out as such.

Everything’s offensive.
It really just depends,
On who it least offends,
if it’s that extensive,
And how the statement ends.

Say perhaps a garden bed,
The home of many flowers,
Beautiful are thoughts of ours,
But offended those who dread,
The pollen from the flowers.

I drove to the grocery store,
A statement thought concluded.
But drivers I had not included.
Offended plus those even sore,
Like stores that I excluded.

Eating meat, it once was fine,
And praise befell the griller.
Now my picture is a thriller,
From the comments said online,
With me the vicious killer.

I’m not sure but maybe most,
Of those I send this to.
You will question what to do,
And maybe you will even post,
if I offended you.
