Politically Incorrect

    On rare occasions we feel a need to color outside the lines, to transgress the bounds of decency that the human collective (aka Society) has drawn around our public behavior.  These poems constitute a minor study of that need, presented in the hope that they may shed some light on it and perhaps enable us to create ways of either eliminating it or satisfying it in a way that does not disrupt the smooth social intercourse that makes human society at all possible.  I will avoid posting anything excessively obscene, but remember that obscenity, like beauty, lies entirely in the eye of the beholder.
