Poetic Journey - One Sided Dialog
Mercury is in retrograde at the moment. It will be going direct on the 29th. I cannot wait Communication has definitely been hampered since the 7th and ergo the following poem.
One sided dialog
I know you think you heard
What you hoped I'd say
But I assure you
I did not say that.
Or was it me who thought I said
Something more direct
But in an effort to be not rued
Didn't make myself perfectly clear.
What I meant was not merely no
But hell no
A far cry from the maybe
You claim I agreed to.
It think it is an interesting idea
Is by no means agreement
Just because I might agree in principle
Is not reason to assume I will do it.
It seemd a very simple matter
Us on two sides of an issue
Neither right nor wrong
I just abhor how you managed it.
Saw my politeness as endorsement
And quoted me in agreement
Now it is clear
Your reality is not mine.
I know you wanted to hear
What you are now saying I said
But I assure you I did not
I said very clearly, to me, No Way!
You have enough company
With just the voices in your head
Changing monologue to dialog
Fact to fiction/fiction to fact.
For the record I said no.
