On Relative Rights

A short fall in human
rights suggests a failure
in the harvest, perhaps

a missing plank
in the slide, and
some will go flying,

others hungry,
while you add

to describe
the call
for a boycott

of your literary
party by so-called
rights activists,

which I presume
to mean men
and women

who agitate on
behalf of humans;
their call certainly

draws unwanted
attention to murder
of journalists

so let me propose
that we make fun
of it by such

as burning

an effigy of a doll
named censorship
without addressing

the argument
of the boycott
which did not say

don’t go, just
be aware of where
you speak in deed.
