Like The Rest Of Us - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Being introduced,
Is similar to a new flavor tasted.
Everyone flatters.
And on their best of behaviors.

One can tell when familiarity sets in!
People begin to disrupt conversations.
Talk about others disrespectfully.
And think it okay to say what they please.
With a name dropping of those,
They have chosen to pick apart to dislike.
And expose.
Based upon innuendos.

However...
Being introduced,
Is similar to a new flavor tasted.
Everyone flatters.
And on their best of behaviors.

Until the flavor tasted becomes as common,
As taking a cheap shot at someone's expense.
Regardless if they are within listening distance.

'I remember when they first arrived on the scene.
They were so pleasant to have around then.
I liked them!
Now they have become,
Well...'

~Annoying?
Irritating?
Judgemental and opinionated?
Like the rest of us? ~

'No.
I was not going to say that.
I 'was' going to say...
Boring.
Plus...
They have this 'thing' about wanting meangingful conversation.
WHO are these people?
I tried insulting them...
And they just smiled.
How appalling can they get? '

~Well...
I'm open to learning a few lessons myself.
THAT would be refreshing.~
