Starbucks Now Allows Tattoo On Baristas

If a barista revealed a tattoo firing was the barista’s fate
In a land where one in seven have at least one tattoo on their bod
Not a policy one would want to applaud
One can come into Starbucks tattooed and buy coffee and treats
But not from a barista with tattoos for customers to greet
No more, Starbucks has finally seen the light
Tattoos now allowed; do not have to be covered from sight
One would hope that as to some tattoos, Starbucks draws the line
Gang symbols or race baiting should not be part of allowed designs
The times are changing; tattoos are now mostly acceptable marks
More and more we on the freedom of expression path are seen to embark
If by chance each spouse chose the other’s name to display
The pain in removing the tattoo might many a divorce delay
