taking offense

i’m not a racist homophobe
i think most cultures great
yet who you are and how you live
is yours to celebrate

i’m glad that you found happiness
empowerment and fame
but i don’t need to understand
or share in your acclaim

your color, sex, religion
those only fools address
it’s your lack of character
my comments now access

in truth, i find you lacking
too self-absorbed, too proud
too thoughtless in entitlement
too harsh in being loud

so that’s my view, it’s genuine
but not what you might claim
if your own pride and prejudice
presumes there’s more to blame

i guess that such presumption
is likely to reside
where faith, and love, and reason
have been too long denied
