I’ll deduct it to 25% effort.

Here is 50%
if you continue spitting in my face
I’ll deduct it to 25% effort.
Half the effort was a successful attempt
and your spit filled
childish rant
is deducting
my willingness to serve you.
If you continue
I may walk out
and we already know
half the workforce
already has.

with your nastiness
filling the air
and you expect me to care
and honestly I gave 50% the effort
and still you mumbled
and you fumbled
with the clothing on the counter
and I say no.

As your partner lets you walk out
as they stay behind
allowing you to drive the car
to the door
because we know walking
is beneath the average
with their muffin tops
confirming they’re not savage.
No, they’re plenty fed.

The transaction finished
with a stay safe
as I mumble back beneath my mask
unkind words
for I am not the one
that needs to be reminded
to stay safe.

Thanks for reading.
