Don't Become a Pariah

Political correctness,
that starchy matron who shows up
when someone wants to make a point,
that blue blood who knows what's correct.
It once was easy-- wear the right button,
espouse the most liberal position,
accept no variance from that stance,
walk in marches and carry placards.
Now expand your definition--
beyond everything is political,
beyond stay away from my body
to don't criticize institutions
that are liberal or you're fermenting
unrest, dissension, discomfort.
Follow the rules, said and unsaid.
Don't critique.
