I'M Taking You Off My Best Friends' List - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I'm taking you off my best friends' list.
Yes,
I am.
If I have to put up with your nonsense,
And you don't have time for mine...
I get offended by it.

I don't care if you do have things in your life,
To prioritize.
Or that I might contact you,
At the most inappropriate times.
Or...
You just might like some time to be left alone.
Or...
That I've done the same thing to you,
And my activities you've condone.

So what!

I'm taking you off my best friends' list.
Yes,
I am.
If I have to put up with your nonsense,
And you don't have time for mine...
I get offended by it.

Especially when I have time to sit,
With a wasting of time!
And you have none for me that exist.

I've tolerated your selfishness!
How come this time,
You can not tolerate mine?

I'm taking you off my best friends' list.
Well...
I'm moving you to number 2!
And I could care less how you feel about it!

Hello?
HELLO? ?

I know you did not give me dial tone!
