That's What I Said - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I have been misquoted.
And frankly...
I am getting sick and tired of it.

I did not say you lacked intelligence.
What I said was...
'How can an imbecile masquerade as a fool.
And have the I.Q. of a grapefruit! '
That's what I said 'verbatim'.

I did not mention anything,
About you lacking intelligence.
Nor that you were waiting for an order,
You placed to be filled online.
It has been delayed.
Another misquote attributed to me.

If I thought you had any intelligence at all,
I'd be the first to tell you that.
