Poetry – Between the lines [stop it]

multiethnic upset women scolding in room

A short poem today based on some of the complaints I see on some Facebook groups. When the complaint is so minor, is there something beneath the surface?

Dear fellow human

[I don’t know your name]

The minor annoyance you committed

[I once did the same]

Goes against my social convention

[Mother told me to refrain]

So don’t repeat what you did

[So now I’m deflecting the blame]

Or I’ll tell my friends

[Others always hear me complain]

Who I’m certain don’t know you

[My friendship for them is a strain]

But if we share social circles

[It takes me some time to explain]

By some unhappy coincidence

[I’m worried they think I’m insane]

I’ll write about that online too
