Questioning The Obvious - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I have never said,
You were unbelievably ignorant.
I said you were stupid.
And there is a difference.

'What is the difference?
And try not to flatter me.'

You still have potential.
And how could I stop myself,
From flattering you?
You know flattering you is my business.

'WHY do we have this kind of relationship? '

To love and honor one another,
From the depths of our hearts.
That's what I mean when I call you stupid.
You enjoy questioning the obvious.
