Four-Letter Word

A four-letter word
that no one should use:
is the word that is common, called fair,
for this word is absurd
and depends on the views,
it is fair to say, based on hot air.

George Will on George Stephanopoulos’s program on ABC on March 30,2008 declared that thre is a four-letter word that he forbids his children to say: fair.
