Depictions May Solicit Unhealthy Images - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Controversy and the raising of eyebrows,
Produces the same affect.
From those who prepare to protest,
The reading of an epic.
That depicts within its pages,
A newborn being breast fed.

And the author is neither married.
Or has children.
And the one who has written this epic,
May be a male who describes.
His own upbringing.

Upsetting those who believe,
His depictions may solicit unhealthy images.
To those who are children,
Already experienced at downloading pornography.
On their cellphones.
