Making Suggestions - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
No attention should be given,
To anyone that offers...
An unsolicited opinion.
With it done to come abruptly,
And without it known to witness shown...
What experiences one has lived.
Or what patience it has taken,
To tolerate someone else's...
Lack of awareness or knowledge.
Listening to nod one's head,
May not be enough.
Keeping one's mouth closed,
To prevent the starting of an argument...
Could be more offensive,
If one is not provoked...
Into expressing 'some' agitation.
'All I'm doing is making suggestions.
If my recommendations are not accepted,
You could at least show me respect.
Without laughing in my face.
To then walk away.
Saying nothing is not what I expected.'
