What About The Message?

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Some choose to abuse the messenger,
For a delivered message.
And the contents it contains.
But the messenger is not the creator of it.
Although they wish their actions taken,
Will convince the messenger to have it changed.

'You know...
I have never been impressed by those messengers.'

~What about the message? ~

'What about it?
If I was more impressed,
With how those messengers dressed...
I 'may' pay more attention to the message.
As for now...
I have other priorities.'

~I see.
Well...
Who knows?
Maybe one day the 'Creator' of the contents,
Will take your preferences to consider their value.~

'And that's if...
I happen to be in a receptive mood.'
