Thankless

We both know
you should have
named me
in your speech.
We both know
you should have
nodded to me
as you passed.
We both know
you should have
been more grateful.
We both know
I deserved it
more than you.
There is poison
on my tongue,
no doubt,
but you have to know
you put it there.

    I always wonder who you’re talking to… who this person is that deserves your vitriol.

Go ahead -- say something. Anything.
