Asked To Be 'Disrespected' - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Have you ever been ASKED,
To be 'disrespected'?
Then given a look of disbelief,
When the request has been rejected?

If you have...
You know where this is most likely to happen.
And If you haven't...
There is a place like this that exists.
Wherein people aware of this,
Pray consistently as if addicted in need of a fix.

Exaggerating?
You are welcomed to pay a visit.
Within twenty four hours,
What has been discussed becomes quite obvious.
And this mindlessness that is part of the environment...
Is totally an accepting mindset easily offended if mentioned.

Try to bring this ignorance to anyone's attention.
And watch closely to their reaction.
