The Culture of Approved Invective

You’re fat, you’re thin, you’re old.
You’re past your best, we’re told.
The culture of approved invective
has arrived for the unprotected.
Too much, too little, too late.
It’s acceptable now to berate
your shape, your age, your verve,
you’ll get what you’ll deserve.
Get you, get this, get lost.
I could barely give a toss.
I’m me, I’m mine, I’m proud.
My head shall not be bowed.
