the spade

what you think unequivocally
is not something you tell
for being most truthfully
often doesn't fly so well

we have adopted behaviour
to not express as it is
but instead we favour
to stay within social limits

instead of 'looks like shit''
we say 'has growth potential'
and rather than 'bin it'
we praise the 'oscar material'

rather than labeling a sample
'an effort gone to waste'
we eufemize the gamble 
as "it's an acquired taste"

our feedback wonders afar
i think we ought to stimulate
saying the things as they are
and call a spade a spade
