CRITICISM

I’m not much for criticizing ~
I don’t often “take it well”

Of course, it all depends upon
who’s doing the criticizing

and why they feel
it necessary to ring my bell.

I’d like
a “friendly suggestion”
much better

in an e-mail or a
letter

Don’t tell me what I did
wrong
Tell me what I did right

If I ask you to critique my work,
then I open myself up to
criticism

But I won’t ask you to do that thing,
because I don’t like anything
“ism”

I’d find it hard to do the
criticizing
even if you should ask

I don’t want to hurt your
feelings,
even if you were to give me
such a task

So, let me know what
you think of my rhyme ~

and whether I should make
a change here and there

Because I’d like to know what
you think

But, if I don’t agree with you ~
Beware.
