Expectations Of A Hospitality - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Let's make this clear,
Between us.
What you wish to do,
At the expense of my time...
Is not permissible.
I see that as blatant disrespect.
And you might not ever understand this.

But,
You inviting 'your' friends over to my home...
With expectations of a hospitality,
None of you get...
Should not make you upset at all.
Regardless if you did call,
To ask if I minded some company.

'I thought you and I were friends? '

Yeah.
But I'm not prepared to host,
An unexpected party.
Whether it is a 'surprise' one or not.
