Poetry Day: Do I Look That Stupid?

Not Dumbledore

(Pretty sure we’ve all had these types of encounters.  Some people really just can’t read the signs.  Then you become the bad guy.)

I get it
I heard it the first time
Stop repeating
It was a welcomed warning
The first few times
It is a daily ritual
That stings
And burns


To what I assume
Is a sign
Neon in color
To my head
Invisible to my eye
Am not stupid


I learn
I adapt
I can figure out
What is right
And wrong
There is no need
To repeat
The warning


So please
I have my limits
As they may be
I understand
I concede your point
But please

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    I also don’t like a repeated warning, especially if said in a tone of ondescension.

    And by “ondescension,” I mean condescension. 😄


  3. I don’t know why people feel the need to school others anyway. Super poem.
