Impolite Conversation is a place where we can talk about the things we were told not to discuss in polite company - politics, sex, spirituality & religion and money - as well as science, culture, personal development and more. Our content is not all risqué or even rude: When we use the word "Impolite", we're talking about an attitude - one of not blindly following conventions or authority, especailly when they divide (or even oppress) us.

Big Bully

A short poem by Impolite favourite Graham Roos

Evil seems to triumph.

 

It does not.

 

Just makes a big noise,

a violent bully in this realm.

The ultimate coward

and small town thug.

 

All the other universes

stay calm, composed

where it lingers as a ghost.
