Your Remarks - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Unkind comments,
Intended with them to mention...
To then wish a forgiveness be given,
With an apology to excuse...
A 'conscious' doing,
By someone who confuses...
An indifference towards others,
As an ignorance that has aged...
And irritates those no longer amused,
May admit such comments mentioned...
Were not intended as meant.

Although the fact still remains,
A maintained and sustained ignorance...
Taught to teach and secretly preached,
Has become more acceptable to acknowledge,
If one confesses to pretend to comprehend,
Their ignorance to misunderstand...
Should not offend anyone else,
If everyone understood ignorance for what it is...
To be enjoyed and not taken so seriously.

If it had not been for displays of ignorance...
To choose as a way to feel better than others,
Regardless of race, creed, or religious druthers...
With a living of colorful and spiced lives,
What would a conscious effort to stay respectful do?
And without passing judgement too?
Life to live without meaningful ignorance to intend,
Many would find no reason or purpose to live.

'I'm sorry for calling you names.
From now on I'll do that amongst family members,
And those I regard as my close friends.'

~I accept your apology.
But remember,
Only choose to be disgusting with your remarks...
After you have been given permission.
Not before.~
