Consideration And Compassion - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

One moment.
I want to digest your thought process.

I stopped to provide you with assistance,
To fix your flat tire.
And you tell me you are late for a meeting?
And...
I am taking longer than you had expected?
That I should show more consideration,
AND compassion?

'What do you think you are doing to my car.
You're taking the air out of my other tires.
And you haven't put the spare on.
YOU are going to cause ME to get fired! '

Consider this...
With an attitude like yours,
I am sure you are not missed.
Any compassion I 'use' to have,
Will be left to your memory.
I'm outta here!
You mistake me for some other monkey.
And you have become deluded by 'this' zoo!
