Keep Your Opinions Valued - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Keep your opinions valued.
Aren't they 'yours' to make?
Aren't they yours to express?
No matter what approach you use,
To address them to be vocally made.
You never know just 'who' appreciates,
What it is you have to say.

Just because I'm not impressed,
Should not mean you should be...
Less opinionated.
Does it?
If you see me yawn...continue on.
That's not a clue I am bored or ignoring you.
Or that I like looking at my watch, periodically.

Keep your opinions valued.
Aren't they 'yours' to make?
Aren't they yours to express?
No matter what approach you use,
To address them to be vocally made.
You never know just 'who' appreciates,
What it is you have to say.

And...
Just because I get up to pace the floor,
As if I am having a nervous fit...
The moment 'you' express 'your' opinion,
With wishes you hurry up and quit.
Or that I'm doing the best I can to keep awake...
Hoping that's the last opinion I hear you make.
