I Don'T Play That!

Call me names!
Convince others I am a 'nut'
Talk behind my back...
And make things up!
Distort the facts,
As you are accustomed to do.
Criticize my demeanor,
When I am out of view.
Tell me to my face,
How close a friend you are.
But you do more pretending,
And pretense wont take you far.
Do whatever you think,
I am not aware you do!
Screw around with my 'work'...
And my abilities too.
You and others who see me as a fool,
Will discover that 'jerk' isn't me but 'you'!
I don't play that!
Those games are for children.
And adults who still play them...
Aren't worth the time to return that crap!
