For Better Or Curse

I'm told that one of the actors in my play reading last week remarked how unusual it was to do a contemporary play with no swearing.

On the other hand, one of my audience evaluation sheets asked me to clean up the language, specifically noting a "Jesus" exclamation in the first few lines and a smattering of "hell"s as well.

I could have cursed worse,
It's true.

Still, I could go through
And replace all hells with hecks,
And remove all mentions of sex.

I probably won't change it.
I'm just too lazy to rearrange it.
