The “I” Word

I want to see this message go farther and faster.

An ongoing trend – a bone of contention.
To achieve an end – a word not to mention.
At least that’s the theory – stop association,
Then critics will weary, while within the nation
Will grow deep inside, a malignant cancer
Where new cells divide; where no blade will lance a
Tumour that grows, with each passing hour,
As discord it sows – increases its power.
No, don’t say this word when talking of terror.
If you’re overheard, they’ll point out your error,
For their ears are blocked, their eyes tightly shuttered;
Their logic is locked; the “I” word not uttered.
