You Know It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

How can you speak to me,
About what you 'perceive' is disgraceful?
When you are standing on my foot.
And I 'believe' you know it!
Leaving us both not to go anywhere.
Enforcing your wish to have me worship you,
Is not working!
You will always be a fool,
If you think this act advances you.
How could it?
Neither one of us,
Is going absolutely nowhere!
And even though I keep saying it,
You are in disbelief!
