Editors’ Poem on Editorial Policy

We have to delete
Things likely to cause some offence,
Be it racial or sexual
Or seen as unsuitable
By the editing football aesthetes.

Notes

(Apologies to American visitors, in particular, who post non-footballing poems. Although we exist to promote creative writing, we are known as a football website and must meet that expectation. A minimum one line football reference is the yardstick. Another responsibility is the large number of schools who use this site and that consideration affects editorial policy too. The archive section contains a fuller statement of policy.Thanks.)
