The Lecturer

I don’t need you to lecture me
I don’t need you to hector me
I don’t need you to point out
The error of my ways.

I’m capable of thought myself
I too have learned my lessons
I detest your abject misery
Your supercilious nays.

You don’t know everything my dear
You don’t have dibs on knowledge
You cannot force your views on me
Hey, I too went to college!

You make folk feel uncomfortable
Because you don’t let go
You lecture, hector, make life hell
The one who always knows.

  5. I have a woman who is in this poem of yours
    I have never met her, but she is the lover of a very dear person I care very much about
    she seems to think I am interferring in her “fixing” him and that I need to stay away
    so she can work on their being happy…
    *sigh* I don’t understand people like tis, and I am so grateful
    for if I did, I would be like them…
    a great poem Polly….
    Take Care…
