Gestures

Now the “a-okay” sign ain’t a-okay at all
unless you’re a White Supremacist and all.
I have to stop and think before making the gesture
or I’ll be stereotyped and, at the very least, given a lecture.
I might want to give the okay sign to a friend
but now such action is sure to offend.
I guess I’ll just give the high-five sign.
Does anyone know if that’s still fine?
Oh, Lord, don’t tell me the White Supremacists
have also co-opted that formerly fine sign.
I’d just keep my hands in my pants,
but someone would be sure to ask
if I’m a perv playing pocket pool perchance?
