Respect for Elders

The judgements of the uninformed 
Take such peculiar shapes:
"You must want to suck his cock,"
"Big yikes that's racist,"
"Triggered much by your cringy cult?" ...
Which, in context, are a little like saying
"Lobsters turn blue when it rains,"

That is, everyone is entitled
To their opinion
And can dress up their feelings
As facts,
And they're even allowed to scream
When it's threatened
And put their hands in their ears like wax.

The truth that would save the world,
Or at least them,
Must be violently opposed,
For the cancer it would cure
Must spread
Until everyone is dead.
A person's feelings are that important.
