|Yes, Silence is golden
Beautifully written, this poem; brought back memories of the song with same title. Your line, "The PC thing to do is fix the blame" - yes, human nature. Written words allow us to reflect - that is what I like about poetry, as in the song, Silence is Golden, But my eyes still see (actions can be stronger than words or no action).
And, isn't wonderful that we can keep our thoughts to ourselves; as you have said, "To keep unto yourself if that's your choice."
