Shackled by Name-Calling
by DCDave

"If I your lurid charges
Should let myself believe,
Could I my reputation
Ever then retrieve?

"There are lots of dangers
I have no fear of, but
I am oh so fearful
Of being called a nut."

Our prison-like condition
We then might ascribe
To fear of little more
Than a childish jibe.

David Martin
