Talking in code pretty regularly.
Cushioning the bluntness of the meaning.
Otherwise, deemed too sharp, incredibly,
the attitude of mind which revealing.
Presented with degree of encryption.
Still forthright, but in an artistic mode.
May, or may not, need further description,
the expression put out there, to be told.
Straight-talking seems a lesser influence.
Don’t want to be lectured as though told-off.
Is just opinion, in innocence.
This, like water on a duck’s back, rolls off.
And yet a poem can, perhaps, design
to convey purpose which is meant, in rhyme.
