Insulting My Intelligence

There are things I can forgive
I try to turn a blind eye
Insult my intelligence?
Don’t you dare even try!

My intuition is strong
It’s backed up by some facts
So don’t try to pretend
I’m not fooled by the acts

Please search deep in your heart
See who has been there for you
Perhaps then you’ll discern
What’s the right thing to do

An angry foe I can face
I can be on guard and pray
But a “friend” who backbites
I won’t give time of day.

    My dear Eileen I love this one. It is realist and bears a lot of truth. It rhymes beautifully and flows well with a nice rhythmic pattern. Nice work.

    They say "strength in numbers". But, in your case, 1 is all you need, at the end of the day. Strong message here.
