Warning! !anguage Ahead!

written by: J.Ahlberg

@anothermadidea

 

All language is sensitive

Meaning isn't definitive

Context creates alternative

Views are comparative

Warnings aren't preventative

Nice is often negative

Swearing can be relative

It's soppy to be tentative

Sweetness is a sedative

Bland is simply decorative

Content is imperative

 

Prosey is hypersensitive

When made of flimsy flowers,

But language argumentative

Emboldens and empowers.
