Please Listen When We’re Speaking

We’re not talking to ourselves

Or the things on closet shelves

Some day  we hope  you’ll learn

When we’re finished, it’s your turn.

Please don’t interupt us

When you rush in with abruptness.

Ifwe speak its merely noise

You don’t cutoff men or boys.

Why is it ok

To dismiss anything we say?

The day is coming mister,

From your wife, your boss, your sister

When your ears will finally hear

Our  message loud and clear:

Listen when we speak

Or fresh pastures we will seek.
