Pleased - Poem by Frank Avon

When they are introduced to a stranger,
only bozos say (the eastern author explains)
'I'm glad to meet you.'

I had to be eighty years old before I heard that,
by which time I'm proud to be a bozo, or hick
from Tennessee, who really says 'Pleasta meecha! '

But the difference is we don't say it
unless we mean it, so if I ever meet that eastern author
in person, I'll say politely, as she has made me aware I should,

'How do you do? '
And not care.
