He Replies Not When You Taunt

Because now he replies not
when you taunt

and you will feel perplexed
and you will be frustrated

because when you tell him bad
news, he moves not

because when you praise him he
will not smile

nor his breast heave with humble
pride

No, no, he will just watch; he
will just fall.

No. no, he will be silent even
though you crack

a joke that will burst the
sides

he will not move, he will not
speak, he will not give back

you will frustrated and nervous
yourself feel at his civilization

you even take from him, this or
that, or all, and he moves not.
