Irrationality

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
