No Filter

I upset and I offend

Both strangers and friends

Because I don’t understand

The societal trend

To be someone else

Never be yourself

Applying a filter

Between brain and mouth


But it means I never need vetting

Because you know what you’re getting

Unconsciously offensive

Accidentally upsetting

Divisive opinions

But honest and open

Some people hate it

Others find it refreshing


As long as you know

That if I upset you

Or hurt or offend you

It’s never deliberate

(Unless you deserve it…)
