Betrayed Sensibilities

In a world where

All bets are off on

Common courtesy, decency,

And sense–

Especially during this

Incredibly long, drawn out

Election year–

The foibles of another

Human who dared to

Instruct lovely, grown-up people

To behave properly

And sit in the back of a crowded room

Has been the undoing

Of me today.

I cannot seem to let it go–

The request

Betrays my sensibilities

Of right and wrong

And the ineptness

That stupidity breeds.
