PC

When I worked at Social Services
we didn't have 'tea- breaks',
no, because management said 'tea'
smacked of colonialism
we had 'comfort-stops'.
Wrote on 'chalk' not 'black'-boards,
called females 'women',
not 'ladies' due to sexual connotations:
'ladies of the night' apparently.
There were gay,lesbian
and trans-gender groups,
and a memo circulated
about toilets being turned
because they faced Mecca.
When I worked at Social Services
it was incredibly PC;
your every utterance
and action watched
by the word-police,
who loved to see you sweat,
so long as it wasn't
like a paedo in a playground.......................
