You Don'T Know 'Nuthin' About Me - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People are known to become very protective,
When something they have done is suspected...
To be neglecting of their responsibility.
With proof known to be discovered as is shown.

And when that day happens,
To focus on their lack of accountability...
Belligerent and showing a lack of dignity,
Validates who they are and witnessed for all to see.

'You don't know me.
You don't know 'nuthin' about me.
How dare you tell me I am incapable,
Of being responsible or displaying discipline.'

Uh...maybe your actions speak for themselves?
And perhaps your boisterous acts that are combative,
Have committed you to denial and that's a fact.
I don't have to know you to observe that.

'So what are you saying?
You will not hire me because you percieve,
Me to be disruptive and I will do as I please?
With no regard to fellow employees.
And you feel I will not represent your company needs?
That sounds to me like discrimination.'

It sounds to me you have provided me with relief.

'Say what?
You don't know me.
You don't know 'nuthin' about me.
How dare you tell me I am incapable,
Of being responsible or displaying discipline? '
