    "oh, you're a baller"
    she asked with disdain
    waving her hand in my face
    as she laughed out my name
    front'n for her crew
    trying to make fun of me
    i smiled
    shook my head
    as i rose from my seat

    "are you referring to me, ma'am?"
    i asked of her...nicely
    never cussed or made a fuss
    ...was as nice as i could be

    "i know well who i am
    i have a job
    and i've got game
    i've never uttered a word to you
    respect my person and do the same"

    she yelled obscenities
    continued to growl at me

    head side to side
    as she pointed at me

    stomped her feet a few times more
    and looked to her crew
    but they lowered their eyes and said
    "babygurl...i can't hang with you"

    loud volume and small words
    does nothing for me
    so i walked away
    gracefully

    all the diss'n in her repertoire
    doesn't define who i am
    but a brutha can only take so much
    before he breaks and be like...
    ...****.

    waves of rage
    swelled beneath my skin
    the heartbeat drum
    beating loud from within

    but i continued my walk
    had to get away, son
    stupidity
    is a pity
    so, i forgive her
    this one.

    and the story goes...

    "who is this woman?"
    as i glanced to the door
    she's loud
    obnoxious
    i haven't seen her before

    i left her standing
    i was getting upset
    she came running out
    as i crawled in the Lex

    "oh,
    you're funny.
    trying to play me and ****
    why didn't you tell me
    you ball like this?"

    how i do
    what i do
    is none of your concern
    you stepped to me
    BITCHING
    had you asked
    you would have learned
    but like all hoodrats
    you're opinionated
    like this
    always opening your mouth
    and stepping in
    ****.


    Thanks for the read, y'all...

    -7...you know i missed my little four leaf clover...forever floating in the gentle breezes of my future. pleased to read ya.

    peace.

    thanks Q...

    as we all know, life is too short to be dealing with the stupidity of others. so, we steel our civility and walk away.

    thanks for feeling me.

    peace.

    you know how that vicious streak, in the mind of women, can be.:)

    and, yes, i have seen women who slice and dice bruthaz for the laugh of it.:)

    such is life.

    thanks Ma D.
    i know if i had gotten into a tight spot, all i had to do was call on the playground crew and all would be well.

    Onelove.
