It is not to be asked

It is earned, given without being asked to

Respect begets respect

You asked and it will served to you, reluctantly

You don’t yet it will be handed to you without qualms

And (not) vice versa.

Giving respect to one who’s disrespectable

Is quite a dilemma, really

But sometimes it is necessary

To show one’s breeding and a bit of civility

Or common courtesy, perhaps?

Still, respect is the ammunition

Of one who is disrespectful

A dilemma indeed
