Impatience & Temper

stomped in
on its little fat legs.

'I've no time for pleasantries,'
it said,

It wanted me to
do this
do that

and be quick about it.

But I knew
it hadn't a leg to stand on now.
And I told it so.

'No, no,' I said

(I have to admit
I felt a bit
like the Kevin Spacey character
in American Beauty)

'No, no.
You don't get to tell me what to do
I said.

And it felt good.
