Listen, You!

Listen, you!
Listen, look, observe
Read the post or question
Carefully
No more than we deserve!

Listen, you
Pay attention, please
Read the post and inwardly
Digest
Before you post your sleaze

If we talked
You may give sharp retort
For which you’d be forgiven
But writing
Gives you time for thought

Listen, you
Really gird your loin
Against your angry impulse
To shout
Complete in-comprehension.

Listen, you!
Listen, look, observe
Read the ruddy question
Carefully
It’s no more than we deserve!
