Multi-Talented - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Have I come back with the same rap to unpack?
Will I be uncouth expressing not a hint of tact?
You can count on that!
Will I reveal facts or just deliver belligerence?
That's something I haven't done,
Since the last verbal counterattack!
No one won nor was stunned.

How disappointing!

None of that is planned.
Since I am not in a premeditative mood...
To be recalled upon demand.
Although my attitude depends,
On who comes in with more ignorance
Than I can normally stand or myself send,
With an enraged insanity controlled on command.

But I'd be willing to expose a dose or two to throw...
If situations get out of hand!
I've been told I can show I'm multi-talented,
At a moments notice!
Give an exit that is awesome as well as grand!

Unlike some folks,
I have been trained to exceed expectations.
I did not just sit in class!
I became a master prepared to blast any task,
Requiring both attention and completion to satisfy.

'No one here has asked for your resumé.
You have been invited to join us.
Are you coming in or not? '

I suppose.
Since you are not going to formally introduce me!

'And please...
Do your best to subdue your obnoxiousness! '

I'm appalled by that accusation!
Bring me a scotch and ginger!
