Boundaries

With friends at dinner,

The issue of Woody Allen came up.

I found myself defending him.

Here’s why.

As children of the sixties,

We challenged boundaries

in love and politics.

Political correctness

(No substitute for 

Political courage)

Stifles creativity

in thought and love.

To say “me too.”

To condemn and cancel,

Is safer than initmacy, audacity

Freedom and development.

Where is the line between

Sexuality and perversion?

Who draws it?

  1. Very provocative and thought provoking. We as a society need to continue challenging boundaries
    in order to change our current culture. Loved your poem.
