Poem Friday on Tuesday – NoBody is Perfect

Nobody is perfect
Author Lesley Voth

Trial by media I believe for Paula Deen
Many unforgiving of the popular cooking Queen

She is being crucified for a verbal mistake
I mean it was years ago, get over it, for goodness sake

I heard her apologize in an emotional way
I believe, to me it was a genuine display

But no, it seems to be taking up media space
What ever happen to good old Christian grace

Companies taking away her sponsorship
Those on the ‘view’ so pure,not, tearing a strip

In fact 12 companies have cut their ties
Yep, pulled the plug, said their goodbyes

Shame on them thats what I say
She has worked hard to make her way

I know all of us have used a word in a defamatory way
It is only ourselves we degrade and betray

As my Mother said, Sticks and Stones
They May break my bones

But names will never hurt me
Great words, when feeling offended don’t you agree

It is getting tiresome the criticism they inflict
Because I have yet to meet that person who is perfect
