Miss, Communication!

Poem By David Taylor

I am oft' miss understood.
When I said go away
I did not mean
don't come back today.
When I said don't shout
I didn't mean don't talk about...
when I said I'll ignore you
well I didn't mean it quite like that.
When I said the food's too hot
I meant the spices, hot it's not!
When I said yes to your double negative
it was of course a non agreement
to the ideas you ardently exhorted,
and if you really don't have no doubt
then I'm not sure what it was about?
