Naked Honesty - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

we are born
naked and then we were dressed by
them who know much better
nudity is a shame

we were born honest
originally honest nothing hidden
until they taught us that
honesty can be shameful
like nudity

when we go naked in the streets
our pubic hairs and
sex organs exposed
they tell us
we have become obscene and
that we have committed crimes

soon we will die naked
but they still dress us
perhaps to hide once more
the sins that they
have committed for us
