Sometimes it is easier to hide,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
A red elephant in a closet.
Than to open the door of one,
Looking for a good mood to wear.
Hoping to keep it,
Without someone having something foul to say...
To ruin one's entire day.
As if they knew just how to do it.
It takes all the strength in the world,
Not to step toe to toe with ignorance.
And a good mood can be stripped to grit teeth...
Just like that!
Quicker than someone with decent intentions,
Indecently allows something equally foul...
To come popping right out of the mouth.
