In The Process Of Doing It
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
I am listening to you.
And in the process of doing it,
You've changed your mind three times...
To contradict yourself.
And within minutes you have denied,
The last comment you made.
To then say I have misunderstood,
With your intentions left uncomprehended,
Your friends who whisper have mentioned...
Me playing the part of the culprit.
In time they too, and within your view,
Will come to refuse and excuse...
The manipulating you choose to do too well.
