Once upon a time my Facebook feed was filled with many
Pretty pics of family and witty memes aplenty.
But then I shared a point of view that set my friends afire;
I hardly could conceive the controversy that transpired.
I labored to explain my thoughts and never to offend.
Alas, a few could not decipher what my heart intended.
No matter how I spelled it out, expounded, clarified,
They only heard a hate-filled bigot shouting, “Crucify!”
So now I must resign myself to gaining their reproval,
A bitter pill to swallow, losing their approval.
But wiser now I come to thee with insight to allot:
‘Tis better to reflect alone than share your inner thought
If frenemies you do not wish to make along the way,
For frenemies are destined if conviction you display.
