Profanity

You scream out your blackened lungs at me

Spitting toxic saliva across the room

Your voice amplifies as utter rage takes a hold

You wait for a reaction, but my facade is stone cold

 

Why you so angry & out of control?

Have my actions finally taken their toll?

I stand firm against your abuse

Your outburst has no excuse

 

Your use of profanity

Tries to break my sanity

But I am stronger than you think

Your evil words will not bring me to the brink

 

Your use of profanity

Will not break my sanity

I will attack you with my silence

Breaking your shallow attempt of vocal violence

 

You bellow words from your mephitic mouth

Venomous spittle flies across the room

Your yells increase as madness takes a hold

You pause for a reaction, but I stand upright & bold

 

Why you so angry & out of control?

Have my actions finally taken their toll?

I stand firm against your abuse

Your outburst has no excuse

      Laura,

      wrote this after I parked my car outside somebody's house during the lockdown so I could deliver some shopping to a neighbour who was self-isolating. The person who's house I parked outside came at me verbally & threatening because I had parked outside his house. I had actually parked legally on the road & hadn't blocked their drive or done anything untowards.

      Anyway they screamed & shouted & I simply explained very peacefully why I had parked there & that I had done nothing wrong & that he did not own the road. I kept my phone in my hand & recorded the entire episode.

      The old man I delievered the shopping too was furious & without me knowing called the police. The police eventually came to my own house to take a statement & watched in disbelief the video which showed how aggressive this man was.

      All I know is the police are going to talk to him. I told them not to bother but they insisted.

      Hopefully it's all over - PEOPLE!

      Unsub.

        Jeez...that’s insane!

        Once again the proof of the adage
        —‘No good deed goes unpunished’—
        is alive and well!

        There's only one person i despise this much and i have been training my arse for 14 years to fart her name out loud! Elspeth.... so far i have mastered the 'peth' bit but i'm thankful her name wasn't Margherita.

          dusky,

          I wish you every success with your flatulence hatred, I'm sure there's a poem in that subject matter.

            Andy,

            I always sharpen my apathy before taking it out on the streets.

            Oohh, what's all this, getting mephitic?! I dunno what's going on, untiI gets out me dictionary!
            I'm gonna have a bad-hair day if two con-men stop me again, asking for money for gardening they did not do for me. I don't know the guys. They can't do much trade, as they drive about in an empty truck! Doh! I've reported them to police, as they've stopped me 3 times now - it's getting silly and has got to stop.

                What I mean is: the profanity is what I may utter if I see those con-men again! Will Fido let me?! lol. What about my tea and cake that I keep suggesting, to sort some things out, Fido says!

                The similar thing happened with a man and his chihuahuas, I was just as calm and collected... Truth keep thoses words rooted!

                Much respect for the flow of this encounter, I shall read it to my son later

                Or when the time is needed, I never forget a good message!

                  PD,

                  no charge for teaching your child the way of the silent assassin.
