Chatroom Etiquette

Before I came I knew
what needed to be said
and I haven’t forgot
if you’re about
to point out
I didn’t say it
yet.

Biding my time –
you’d know
about that too,
the least heard
is the best said
in any iteration of
dreaded censure;

you’re a mess –
bless the stars
there’s no
moon tonight.

Okay,
we’re on line,
is it a smile,
or a grimace?
