Why react irrationally
Why react at all?
Why react emotionally
When on the carpet called?

So someone on you pisses
Or nose adjusts on face
Reacting for reactions sake
Is extremely in poor taste

Honor and civility
Mean nothing anymore
Feelings of entitlement
The rule so more and more

Think before reacting
Suppress at once your rage
Sad that our own character
Be damned this day and age

You don't deserve rebuttal
You don't deserve release
You don't deserve comeuppance
A foolish man are thee

So few can understand
Fewer less comprehend
Most don't desire change
The rest fail and fail again

Those who heed my words
A better world we'll build
Reinstating respect will work
Leaving lemmings on a hill

You have AIDS.
Yes, you have AIDS.
I hate to tell you, boy, you have AIDS.
You got the AIDS.
You may have caught it when you stuck that filthy needle in here.
Or maybe all that unprotected sex which we hear.
It isn’t clear
But what we’re certain of is that you have AIDS.
Yes, you have AIDS.
But full-blown AIDS.
Be sure that you see that this is not HIV
But full blown AIDS.
But full-blown AIDS.
I’m sorry, I wish it was something less serious.
But it’s AIDS. You’ve got the AIDS

Your input is uncharacteristically underwhelming. Please refrain from commenting further.

Brilliance. "E" This is a good one.

Thank you ma'am. Though I must admit, they've been few and far between.

If in fact you are not referencing the "PASSWORD" I think what you are trying to say is...

"Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring. And, that was damn near the death of us all."

The causality of that poem was something far less global, but followed out to its eventual conclusion, sure.

Hmmm! I have a question.

Reacting for reactions sake
Is extremely in poor taste

Are you saying you never react or that the way in which you react is "different"?

When he reacts by laughing it is certainly different. ;-)

Ah, my fine friend - a poet you are indeed. Beautiful, and yes - I do comprehend. Sadly, but it is true indeed.

I never considered you one of the lemmings. I never do.

Nice poem. One of the few I understand. Most eludes me. I am a novel reader, the longer the better. Brevity leaves me wanting more.

I too am a novel reader. Poetry escapes me 99.9% of the time.

Poetry is best used in small quanties.

Something new I'm trying on. I blame it entirely on the passion in a review I read recently...
