Say What You Mean

Hollow phrases from empty faces
Robotic repetitions rendered meaningless
Some used to be polite, but now they are just trite

Why is “Welcome home” usually followed by a complaint or fight?
Or is it just something that happened to be on a cute doormat?

Are your “Thank you” statements truly meaningful?
or merely social obligation?

When I hear “Excuse me” or “Pardon me” I realize instantaneously,
someone is eager to push their way through and shove me aside.

How very rude!
