To say there is a problem

to say there is a problem a poem

To say there is a problem
with police brutality
is not to say that
every LEO is
a problem.

To say there is a problem
with domestic abuse
is not to say that
every home is
a problem.

To say there is a problem
with clergy sex abuse
is not to say that
every pastor is
a problem.

To be so paralyzed
with fear that someone
might misunderstand you
to be saying the latter that
you never say the former is
a problem.
