Choice Of Tone And Arrogant Demeanor

Why is it,
People solicit to get opinions...
Then wish them to be edited,
To appease their expectatons.

And those who refuse to honor their requests
Are thought to be stand-offish...
With an angering of those that stir up protests,
Against someone who attempts not to get them upset.

And yet it does,
And they do...
By trying to protect their sensitivities.
But the depth of them had not been explored,
To make known.

Why is it,
People solicit to get opinions...
Then wish them to be edited,
To appease their expectatons?

And that one who 'is' direct,
With a giving of an opinion to suggest and recommend...
Is seldom left to leave them without being disrespected.
To anger those...
Yep!
You've guessed it.
By trying to protect their sensitivities.

'It wasn't what you said that offended.
It was your choice of tone and arrogant demeanor.
And we are not accustomed,
To anyone who disregards what we accept.'

~What do you prefer?
Deception? ~

'YES!
We thought to 'you' this would be obvious.
Aren't we charading with the best of our pretentions?
How are you ever going to be one of 'us'? '

~Uh...
I'm clueless.~

'And apparently raw, out of the box and not trained, either! '
