Subtle Disrespect

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

You want it played fair.
With a score card even.
Cunning from your point of view.
And crafted as 'you' choose.

However,
With a doing...
You treat me anyway you want to.
Then leave me you do,
With a wish I believe...
You care with 'that' by you perceived.

Yet so apparent is the only 'fair' you wish,
From me to receive...
Is that which I dish you get and I issue.
That's the only 'fairness' between you and me.

A subtle disrespect I don't buy on my time.
A subtle disrespect you can forget to leave.
A subtle disrespect left behind you'll not find,
With a total disregard that you start in my mind.
I am not that kind you can easily blind

You want it played fair.
With a score card even.
Cunning from your point of view.
And crafted as 'you' choose.

However...
A subtle disrespect I don't buy on my time.
A subtle disrespect you can forget to leave.
A subtle disrespect left behind you'll not find,
With a total disregard that you start in my mind.
I am not that kind you can easily blind.

A subtle disrespect I don't buy on my time.
Since I'm not that kind you can easily blind.
A subtle disrespect you leave will exit my mind.
Since I'm not that kind you can easily blind.
