Manners Deleted

There are those in this world
that take rude
to a gourmet level,
finely garnished
with sprigs of tunnel vision,
locked on the one-channel screen
of their bathroom mirror.
Being from the South,
this is like metal shavings
mixed in the grits.
You can force ‘em down, but
coming out,
they'll start a War!

'rude to a gourmet level' . . . didn't meet any of those folks on my trip south, but coming home, round about 'jersey . . .

Why is it that some people feel an impolite thought should be publically expressed? Manners deleted...you bet. Great read!
