With A Wish To Be Seen
I saw you the other day.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
And you 'acted' as if,
You didn't know nobody!
And where were you? '
Standing in the same line you were in,
At the grocery store the other day.
And the end of that long line.
'If I didn't see you,
Why didn't 'you' say something to 'me'? '
I'm not like that.
I don't like to bring undo attention to myself.
You could have turned around,
To see who was standing behind you.
'You are so right.
Aren't you glad I didn't?
That would have brought an undo attention,
You certainly didn't ask for.
And you were there for just one purpose.
To purchase groceries.
Stood there as patiently as possible,
With a wish to be seen.'
