Conundrums

Tell me a word
That you’ve often heard,
Yet it makes you squint
When you see it in print!

Tell me a thing
That you’ve often seen
Yet if put in a book
It makes you turn green!

Tell me a thing
That you often do,
When described in a story
Shocks you through and through!

Tell me what’s wrong
With words or with you
That you don’t mind the thing
Yet the name is taboo.
