(“DIS” means disrespect.) ~ what will I perpetrate ~

“THE ‘DIS’ POEM” a poem πŸ™‚ – for Saturday, September 14, 2019

(“DIS” means disrespect.)

“You don’t know your own mind,” Wise (?) M[e]n have told me;

“Why do you want me to change [again]?” I ask, inquiringly.

“I DON’T KNOW,” say The Wise (?) but [I’m] [we’re] SURE it must be,

Because [I] DO think&orFeelIT and (of course) Ifeel MYclar- ity,

Of thought, life & intention(s) AND I like MY P H I L Osophy.”

“Yeah, I know PHIL means LOVE, but isn’t it OK to disagree,

About WHAT CONSTITUTES LOVE? (pause)

I THINK – it MAY BE leaving alone,

A[ny] person with their own ideas so they can gently HONE,

Their OWN set of skills, values and desires;

I DO N O T SAY [THAT] DESIRES ARE BAD, but some folks have pliers,

And wants to make adjustments on my (select one if you wish)

(1) SILLY;

(2) PERFECT;

(3) ACCEPTABLE;

(4) Any or none of the above

LIFE,

Or to judge my friends and or family or evaluate my (future) wife,

Or my choice of expression or the places I visit.

Why are you concerned so much about MY life YOU NEEDnOT “DIS” IT,

Or BLESS IT. Isn’t it MY prerogative to do what I think is best (for J)?

Why does that not sit well with you? For, I think we must all pay,

OUR OWN [SET OF] DUES FOR THE THINGS WE PURSUE;

There’s only YOU and there’s ME and shouldn’t I choose [with my life],

WHAT I WILL DO?
