Often, I Cried
" If someone is rude, mean or sarcastic
their life options will be very limited. "
Quote by _ poet
Why are some people so mean to sales clerks,
young folks who are trying to make money;
why are some people acting like such jerks,
their rudeness and remarks are not funny.
Why so nasty to staff in coffee shops,
being polite does not cost you a cent;
what makes you think and act like you are tops,
and so important and to staff you vent.
When I was young and had to work these jobs,
would just keep smiling while screaming inside;
I think these people are unhappy snobs,
but, I was hurt and when at home I cried.
When I finished school and was in nursing,
I thought at last I would get some respect;
was wrong for many times I heard cursing,
patient's suffering I would never neglect.
Then, I worked in long term end of life care,
people would visit with an attitude;
not my fault they died I wished to declare,
God bless the people who showed gratitude.
