Lawrence S. Pertillar
What Makes You Think You're So Special?
Anyone with intent to offend then pretends,
What was done had been meant to be a joke...
To not provoke retaliation but laughter,
Represents the sick mindset...
Of many caught in the midst of conflict,
With a belief they are entitled...
To do and say what they please.
To then perceive a receiving of payback,
Isn't deserving to get from someone made upset...
By a thoughtlessness not accepted to excuse,
As trying to have a bit of fun...
But often this kind of fun is done at someone else's,
Do you really believe I would say anything to hurt you,
If I knew you would take it so seriously? '
~But what you did was lie to have others believe that lie.~
So 'now' I should be held accountable for what others believe? '
~Why say anything if you know it not to be true? ~
'People do that everyday.
Why should you be the one offended? '
~Do you know what defamation of character is? ~
'Do you know the way to San Jose?
What makes you think you're so special? '
