Violence and vengeance, rage hate and pain, have become my litany again.

Suffering and loving are never far apart, a woman today took away my heart.

By random chat a poetess arrived to help me while away my time by trading rhyme.

For posting her verse, she had a single fear, someone stealing it, I said, Oh dear.

From the moment you write it, the copyright's intact, that my dear is a solemn fact.

She took my ear, then bent it clear to here. Told me off for calling her dear. "If I ask for special treatment, then you can give it to me. Until then, don't feel the need to talk down to me. I'm a smart girl"
It spun me in a whirl.

Why be honest and why be frank when common courtesy draws a blank or worse a comment that's rank?

Common courtesy is a dime store fantasy, a thing you shake out when you cannot do without
Agony.

Very good work! However, I don't believe that calling someone "dear" is talking down to them, or giving them special treatment. I think calling someone "dear" is a nice way of letting someone know that they are dear to you. Don't fret... she will go on.
