Don't Be Rude


The rude make me brood,
Put me into a mood...
I don't understand
the need to be rude...

Folks who are skewed
with a foul attitude
inspire within me
a desire to feud!

A prayer to St. Jude
I am apt to include
when I encounter
a person so lewd.

Perhaps I 'm too shrewd
when it comes to the rude...
but my tolerance fades
though, assured I'm no prude.

So, as I conclude...
and please don't think me crude...
with respect and with love
I now plead, don't be rude!

I don't admire rudeness in any form, service in many establishments have taken on people who don't like their jobs and as a result they are rude to the customers that pay their wages. I hope your day ends on a sweeter note:-) hugs from me to you.

I think that rudeness brought out the rapper in you. I couldn't help laughing thinking about the beat as I was reading it. FYI, I don't do well with it either but it's sometimes fun to fool with those folks, they're so easy :-P Peace!! Tom

Thank you for providing fun for something so horrible. It's time we start expressing intolerance for those that are apathetic for their fellow human beings. Once we start caring for each other we can solve most all the world's problems.

Thanks again for a fun romp.

Reminds me of the line from Silence of Lambs; that, whenever possible, Hannibal Lecter would eat the rude. Well, you're not a cannibal, so I'm glad you simply stuck to writing a poem about the rude. Ha ha, cheers.

I am not Hannibal and I'm sure no cannibal...but can surely relate to rude on my plate! LOL...the day I wrote this must have been full moon for many rude people crossed my path, which has a tendency to make me wanna be rude!!!

Ahhh, Amy! Thanks for your visit! That day was indeed a "rude" one! It needed a little humorous "shot in the butt"!

Oh, Marsha, how well composed! Such a powerful message and skillful execution (LOL I sound like some medieval prosecutor or something) But I really like how you did it with elusive wit, so clever!

Oh Max, you make me smile! Thank you!
