Lawrence S. Pertillar
Will I Find That A Coincidence?
Isn't it easier to accept,
Something said by someone else...
To object and find offensive?
With a getting then upset.
And this commonness is connected.
And that 'one' professing what has been expressed,
Has a quickness to insist what they have heard...
Is direct and comes from that person's lips?
With a knowing people like this with ears lifted,
Exist to rely on fresh gossip to get.
But the one thing that is always missing,
Is the person who doesn't mention when given attention...
Gets attitude from those the accused person believes...
Are 'already' crazy to accept perceptions they later regret.
'We heard what you said.'
What did I say and who did I say it to? ~
'We don't know we just know that you said it.'
Could it be what you heard is from someone not here,
To repeat it?
Will I find that a coincidence?
Or will you? ~
