Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week (well really last week,
there have been distractions) were: blunt, drunk, and lethargic.
Is it the case,
In this modern world,
That courtesy and attention
Are suspect and derided?
That simple respect is dismissed
With a lethargic wave of the hand
And a bluntly delivered “Whatever”?
Where are our manners?
What are we thinking?
Are we so removed from the
Niceties of a truly civil society
That we are immune to politeness?
Or are we so embarrassed by it
As to enquire as to the sobriety
Of the unfortunate person
As if they must be drunk
To be polite?
That to show
Consideration or concern
Is not the act of a person
In control of their own actions?
