Hey Lady, Put Your Tits Away

This ain’t
that kind of place. And so
another slob shames another mother
for giving her breast to the lips of her child
instead of the ogling eyes of a boob. Bombs
are falling again in Iraq and melting icecaps
flood our coastal towns but moms
should have to hide like smokers
if they want to feed their babies.
I, myself, for what it’s worth, love breasts.
I seem to have a natural inclination for them
as though somewhere in my programming
was the command to pay attention when breasts
appear. That, I understand. If it were up to me
any woman could unholster whenever she pleased.
What I don’t understand is why anyone would think
this was a bad idea. I suppose I could ask
the shamers, but I do not believe they could tell me.
I imagine they’d talk about moral degradation and
they’d probably  mention God. And America.
And they might even raise the dignity of the female
form as they inform me of how this is just the sort of thing
that’s destroying
the world
today.
