Television bleeping is on the rise --
Too many obscenities we must disguise.
The Idol 'Bleep Stick' was graciously given
To the spontaneous, foul-mouthed judge, Steven.
Substituting with random punctuation marks
Is a frequent way to knowingly hallmark
Expletives that are not appropriate
For the eyes of young literates.
Some say it's overkill,
But to mommies, it fits the bill.
Because Notting Hill's character, Spike
Wears a T-shirt that most parents dislike.
Even when the bleeper is on,
One cannot prevent this unforeseeable one:
It's important to keep language clean,
Since an emergent reader will ask, "What does 'Fancy a Fuck' mean?"
