ODE TO ''RESPECT'' -a poem

a poem

Don't Assume What I'm Saying,
Listen To Me.
Don't Treat Me Like A Child.
Dress Me The Way I Want To Be Dressed
Don't Put Salt and Pepper On My Peaches
or A Lemon-wedge On My Vegetables
Learn How To Work With Me.
Put Two Sugars in my Coffee, Not One.
Please, Listen To Me.
Don't Hurry Me Into The Bath.
Accept Me As a Human Being.
Don't Be Afraid of Me When I Speak Up
I've Known Myself for Fifty-Years.
Please, Hear What I'm Saying
[Lenny The RESPECT ant - appears in, The Chloe ''INTERVIEWS'']
