Etiquette, You Bet

*****

You can lie your little head off
In the most destructive way
Shred somebody’s happiness
With everything you say

But make sure you don’t laugh out loud
Sing or dance with sheer delight
Or gaze in awestruck wonder —
My dear, it’s not polite

Among us, poets are not paid. The poet/editor of this website, being physically disabled, lives at a fraction of her nation’s poverty level. Become a patron of the fine arts at: https://www.gofundme.com/are-you-a-patron-of-the-arts
