WHY DIRECTED SARCASM HURTS

WHY DIRECTED SARCASM HURTS

Was poked by a “mere Reader,”

In whose sarcasm I found obscure…

Reasoning

He thought it joking

Apparently not that I’d feel skewered!

Sarcasm in therory is fine,

Til your friends form a firing line…

In Speech class it happened

The whole class came a-rappin’

And I didn’t get out so fine!

In Word Press courtesy

Is better than uncaringly…

Shooting from hips

(This includes my lips),

Then in FACEBOOK you can act unfriendly!

If you don’gt like my stuff, ignore it,

If it interests you–explore it–

But an out-of-the-blue shot’

Mature speech is not,

I ask you to care…I implore it!
