More Couth With Tact Would Benefit

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

I try not to imply,
With comments to affect...
Those who may be offended,
By what is said believed to be indirect.

And there is 'something' in between lines,
To be found and suspect...
That I have mentioned with comments,
Made less effective because they are not direct.

And not a bush do I beat with dragging feet...
To leave anyone to guess,
What it is I have left to ponder in wonderment.
I do not suffer from a lip that is bitten.

But I do admit,
More couth with tact would benefit my approach.
