Why should I respect you?
When you feed me propaganda- I don’t react pleasantly.
Oh credit cards are the devil and fracking is great- REALLY?
Your college diploma doesn’t make you wise or accepting.
It just makes you act like you know everything.
I can’t write about abortion because your views on it are “strong.”
Well guess what- so are mine- and I won’t just play along.
This isn’t a game; these issues are important.
Even moreso, I’d say, than you anti-atheistic rant.
I believe that women have the right to choose-
I’m sorry you can’t cope with my non-Christian views.
You don’t listen to what I’m saying, but what you expect me to
When you realize your mistake, “sorry” never comes from you.
The reason I refuse to do my work’s not because I’m lazy,
But because I have more than school to deal with- the only thing you see.
I’ll respect you if you do the same;
Until then, you’re the one to blame.
