Why Single Me Out?
Nobody told me I should be giving you,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
That kind of respect.
'And what kind of respect is that? '
As 'if' you were somebody.
'And what makes you think,
That is my aspiration?
Treat me the way you've been treating me.
Why single me out?
And why now?
I'm not trying to feel that uncomfortable.'
