~2 Ears & 1 Mouth~ - Poem by E Nigma

Sure, communication to connect is key
But is there really any reason I want to hear me?
Maybe I'm in love with the sound of my own vanity
Perhaps I just don't want to hear your rambling

Echoing nonsense like a thousand daggers
Piercing my mind with constant clatter
Shattering my concentration to pieces
When all I really want Is peace an freedom

Sparing myself from your useless rhetoric
The reality is you're simply irrelevant
Your pseudo-intellectual infectious
Pretentiousness' a self absorbed sponge

Testing my tolerance, bending my patience
How else can I say that you're just tasteless?
So I'll serve you a dish that your soon to
Regret, my assurance to you, it's all for the best

First step starts with shutting the front door
If you caught that quip your arms probably sore
Secondly, pay attention to the quiet collective
Body language is important, notice they're all snoring?

    Wow I never want to get on your bad side, the pen is mightier than the sword, in this case yours is a serrated knife of barbed rhythms

    Your pseudo-intellectual infectious
    Pretentiousness' a self absorbed sponge

    I think someone once said that about me, might have been my mom.
    It really is about listening to what the other person is saying, and well both ears (and eyes) are brought to attention. Great Disses.

    Two ears and one mouth for a reason. Less of a talker
    and more of a listener. Good reasonings.

    Oh my.....! What a harsh tirade on those whose rhetoric rattles and breaks your concentration! Your contempt for the pretentious pseudo intellectuals is evident here though you say it is humour....! Yes, it is biting humour which is sharper and more pointed than any rapier! Enjoyed!

    Aloha E...

    smashing bumpkins brother! butt happy to read that in all seriousness bleeds... contempt... in sarcasms'' defense... read, An Essay on Criticism, circa 1709, by Alexander Pope... you will bust a gut! [communication to connect ], [I want to hear], [your rambling]... [like a thousand daggers ], [Piercing my mind], [to pieces]... [The reality...intellectually infectious...patience]... [Testing...a dish...it's all for the best]... [the front door...to the quiet collective...is important]... Your humor has cured my somber pathos with such sly demeanor... and I am clearer for it! All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two.
