Where Did You Get That 'Bad' Attitude? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Is it the front.
Or the back.
Or both sides of 'no',
You find so difficult to face?

'The 'no' is okay.
I find it acceptable.
It's your attitude I object to.
It offends and if I were you,
I would do my best to improve it.'

I thank you for your unsolicited advice.
There is one thing certain that I can guarantee you.

'What is that? '

No matter how I deliver a 'no'...
You can leave immediately.
And from me you wont have to hear it twice.

'WHERE did you get that 'bad' attitude? '

Me telling you 'no'...
Does not include you asking me twenty questions.
