Cultural Analysis

It’s okay if you
mispronounce my name.
There’s no way
you could have known
for sure
where the emphasis goes.
And I don’t mind
if you smile and say
god bless you,
as if your command
is a sure thing
on its way from heaven.
As long as we can agree
that kindness is the
goal of our intentions,
the truth needn’t
stand in our way.
