Uncivil - by - Bob Atkinson

Uncivil
(c)2016 Bob Atkinson
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civility

having sometimes absolute
feeling in my head
a person should remain polite
always with gentle hand

no shaking fist, or yelling
calling names, that sort of stuff
no violence upon a soul
no kicking up clouds of dust

for these, among other deeds
denote a lack of trust
another might be honestly
dealing with the bunch

I know you favor your position
as I favor mine
we both agree mentality
denotes our side of line

yet does this institution
we cling to in our hearts
support naked violence
devoid of deepest thought

or do we owe society
a handshake now and then
promising to be honest always
in our dealings with all men
