a poem a.k.a.: “Apologies to Jeff And Everyone!” Sept. 23, 2018- Sunday
Some folks will not like you – you’ll-never-ever-really-know-why,
But REMEMBER-to-try-to-live-at-peace – with all men; you-at-least-can-TRY!
But, my guess is that probably – Your despisers have good cause,
To hold you in contempt – For you’ve-broken-one-of-their-laws!
MAYBE it’s your attitude – the way you talk or smell –
Or, maybe, you take advantage – of-something-they-hold-so-well,
As sacred-or necessary – that they think everyone should do –
And, if you do not do it, It-can make them awfully blue,
Or it could be just-the-way-you-look – or! (pause) your tone of voice:
WHATEVER THEY DON’T LIKE IN YOU,
Well, that’s their rightful choice!
So, LET THEM HATE YOU AS THEY WILL, and-treat-them-with-as-much-respect,
As-you-can-generate – and try-not-to-be-sad, and NEVER-DO-WHAT-THEY-EXPECT,
To try to gain their favor, their approval or their smile,
Just be yourself – try-to-do-your-best – MAINTAIN YOUR SPECIAL STYLE,
For there’re many aspects of-human beings – and so much room for strife;
Perhaps THAT saying should-be-well-received: “Variety’s-The-Spice-Of-Life!” 🙂
The man you despise, ‘Cause he’s so full of lies, MAY BE DOING-YOU-AN-AWFULLY-BIG-FAVOR;
IF you spot a “Smug JOE,” perhaps you should go, AND SIGN YOU A SPECIALIZED WAIVER,
Where you give up all rights, given (your) “blurry sights,” THINKING-(THAT)-YOU-MAKE-JUDGMENTS-(a)-RIGHT!
For, when-you-spot-a-defect (May I PLEASE interject:) WHAT-YOU-SEE! ‘TIS-IN-THEE? SHINE YOUR LIGHT!!
