    Ring, Ring
    Is the tone of my phone
    when my number is dialed

    I answer,
    as I always do
    in a sweet, non-threatening manner,
    expecting to have the same
    returned to my ear,
    but it is not there.

    Discord is clear.

    oooooooh.....someone is mad at you....
    I think to myself

    So who is this, this
    irate female, who is
    both crying and yelling
    calling me a name
    surely not marked
    on my birth certificate

    I listen

    Quietly, I listen
    and listen some more
    looking for a familiar name to be dropped
    so that I
    would know EXACTLY
    whose
    woman this was

    EXACTLY
    which brotha
    was raggedy with his
    EXACTLY whose grit
    I would lay bare
    for her loving
    yet caustic ears

    Her tirade broken,
    I seize the moment
    in the quick quiet
    and pause

    I pose the question......

    "Are you done? May I speak?"

    No need to clear my throat
    DJ Kool I am not
    I have absorbed what you said
    and never interrupted

    For this I expect the same
    Courtesy,...Sista
    That is what you called me, right?

    Since you felt the need to
    plop your quarters down
    and call my house
    Disrespect me,
    Sista,...
    let me educate you
    on
    your man.

    His name, not important
    we both know it
    but his actions,...
    yes, let's discuss those.

    Yes, I met your man
    a few months ago
    while on a stroll with my girls
    Single and free is how he appeared
    and how he advertised himself

    Fine, he is, and
    can charm women with words
    His card, he deposited
    in my hand, with a
    smile and a dash of sin...

    But never,...
    NEVER sista,..
    did he mention you

    at home

    waitin'

    Thank you so much Watz, Rich and Python

    Sometimes you need to take the gloves off. (In my own little ladylike manner of course) :bazooka:
