People These Days Are SO DAMNED RUDE ... !!?!!

And Seem To Think They Should NOT Use ...
Words Like THESE These Two ... THANK YOU ... !!!

This Gets To Me Doesn't It To You ... ?

Ignorant Youth Who Act Uncouth ...
Adults Who Fit In Their Shoes ...
And Clearly NEED A ... " Manners School " ... !!!

Women TOO Keep Giving Proof ...
They'd Rather ACT Like ... " Gangster Dudes " ... ?!?

Abusing Men When We Look At Them ... !?!
Some Girls These Days Are Worse Than Phlegm ... !!!!!

You OPEN A Door They LOCK Their Jaw ... !!!
Girls Like THIS I Now .................................................... Ignore .............

Would A THANK YOU HURT ... ?!?

I Guess It Does That's Why These Girls Aren't Finding .......................................... Love ........ !!!

It's Simple Just OPEN Your Mouth ... !!!
You Do It When You Go DOWN SOUTH ... !!!

Now Girls DON'T START To SCREAM and SHOUT ... !!!

"He ain't got a clue what he's talking about !"

I'm SAYING Some of You Just POUT ...
Like An UGLY Trout That's About To DROWN ... !!!!!

Walking Streets With ... " Gangsta Clowns " ... ?!?

FOOLS Who Walk On ... DANGEROUS Grounds ... !!!!!!
Picking FIGHTS ALL OVER Town ...
While Men Like Me Look On And FROWN ... !!!

Just Look At Roads You Know How It Goes ...
You GIVE WAY To Let Someone GO ...

They Get To You And TURN UP Their Nose ... ?!?

This Can Sometimes Lead To BLOWS ... !!!

Or Late At Night It's The Same Thing Right ... ?!?
People BLIND YOU With Their Lights ... !!?!!

NO Smile or Time To Be ... " Polite " ...

They Drive Past You With EVIL EYES ... !!!!!

One Day They'll Get A BIG SURPRISE ...
A FOOL Like THEM Who Wants To FIGHT ... !!!

Surely People This AIN'T RIGHT ... !!!?!!!

I'm NOT Surprised In Modern Times ...
But Felt I Should Put THIS In Rhyme ... !!!

Because People Act Like It's A ... " Crime " ... ?
To Do What's Right And Be ... " Polite " ...

Most Now Seem To Want Street Fights ... ?!?

But NOT The GAME And That's A Shame ... !!!

But Could Such Games Have Bred Such Ways ... ???
It's Merely A Thought So ... What Do You Say ... ?

At The End of The Day People DISPLAY ...
An ATTITUDE That Brings ... DISMAY ... !?!

I Try To REFRAIN From Playing Such Games That End In PAIN ... !!!!!

But Like Most Folks My Patience DRAINS ...
Then I Act INSANE Like ... " Frasier Crane " ...

Do You Get What I'm Saying ... ?
Don't Make BIG PEOPLE LOSE Their COOL ... !!!

You Could LOSE Your Life For Being RUDE ....
REMEMBER That Line Cos' That One's ... TRUE ...

It Seems To Me That Showing RESPECT ...
Makes Some Feel ... " weak " ...

So They REFUSE To Do THIS When Walking Streets ... !!!
But BLAMING Them Is .... TOO EASY .... !!!

I Blame The Things The Media FEEDS ...
Violence And BRUTALITY Are Messages The Children SEE ...

Why NOT GIVE THEM ... " Poetry " ... !!!

From Men and Women Just Like Me ...
Instead of SEX And ... UPPITY Teens ... !!!
Cos' THIS Has NOW ... INFECTED Streets ... !!!

So Let Me Make This Piece COMPLETE ...

It's COOL To Greet People You Meet ...
With Some ... RESPECT ...
That's STRONG ... NOT Weak ... !!!!!

What Does It COST To Use Your SPEECH ...
And Show RESPECT To ... KEEP The Peace ...

Respect IS EARNED Okay That's TRUE ... !!!

But Why Get HURT Cos' Only A FOOL Would Think That's Cool ... !?!

USE Your Mouth It's A USEFUL Tool ... !!!

And USE These Words ... !!!

THESE TWO .......

..... " Thank You " .....
