Privacy - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Depending on the degree of one's privacy,
It is recommended...
One chooses to say nothing.
And if one 'does' one should create.

Privacy is not respected.
And having a peace of mind,
Many people who will never have it...
Don't understand it and that is what they hate!

'I told her not to say a word to anyone.
And she couldn't wait until I got off the telephone...
To tell my business to everyone.
And she calls herself a 'friend'.
