Socially Illiterate - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Socially illiterate,
And using this as a depiction to motivate...
It has become quite refreshing to be ignored by those,
Who have awakened to discover...
Very few are seeking their acceptance.
Or wishing an invitation once approval has been granted.

'Why do they look upon you with disdain? '

~Is that what that is?
I'm glad I'm with you and you took the time to notice.~

'I can't help it.
They are staring.'

~Wave to them.
Maybe they will turn up their noses and look the other way.~
Who knows?
Perhaps the giving them your attention will offend them.~

'Why don't you do it? '

~Why?
Why should I waste a wave? ~
