Zero Tolerance

There are always


on my life’s way

Zero tolerance

actually leads to openness.

In fact, we have-to be careful

with intolerant policy.

Our acceptance

suppresses biased opinions

and most fanatical causes

and keeps tribalism in check.

With inclusion

we claim the need to dialogue,

denouncing deceptive discourse

and eccouraging communion.

A lesson learned

Legislating intolerance –

an untenable position

stirring proper opposition.

Zero tolerance

makes me tolerant –

exceptions prove the rule.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
