What many find exciting will others leave quite bored.
Sea sailing is great to some, for many it is discord.
What many find fair and just will others reprobate.
Righteousness seems great to some, for many it does negate.
What many find good music will others hear as noise.
Beethoven is great to some, for many it just annoys.
What many find exquisite will others' heads not turn.
Modern art looks great to some, for many it will adjourn.
What many find delicious will others' stomachs churn.
Hot peppers tastes great to some, for many it is heartburn.
What many find comforting will others agitate.
Soft caress feels great to some, for many it will deflate.
What many find as sacred will others see suspect.
God image is great to some, for many it is defect.
What many find a treasure will others deem as junk.
Gold medals are great to some, for many it will debunk.
