Nancy, that doesn't need a warning. There is no site warning for mild cursing, so a warning scares off sensitive readers. There also warnings for violence and sex, and the same thing applies - the warning makes the scene appear more violent of explicit than it actually is. Use a warning, and you're telling readers to stay away when what you've written wouldn't be offensive to 99% of readers.

Of course, do use a warning when one is warranted, i.e., when you know the word needs a red flag.

I can't see me saying anything stronger in my poetry.
Thank you. I know I have seen much worse without warning.

Well, I love the way you stung the words together. If someone used the 'f' word over and over -- yeah, I can see a warning. But one 's' word -- that is iffy, but hell and damn, lordy, that must have been one sensitive reader! Or possibly, they were trying to fill up space to get the member cents.

Happy writing!
