No Blacklist Please

Our lives are too complex to be reduced
to elegant synopses. Fairy tales
are straight; by myths we all can be seduced.
But black-and-white applied to being fails.
Reality is complicated – loosed
at us in living color. Truth entails
we grant it all its spectra and its twists.
Don’t libel it with slogans or blacklists.

(Ottava Rima)
