The doctor & the dog don’t respect me

I read the blogs
on aggression,
possession,
tact

but the doctor & the
dog don’t respect me.

Speak in a firm voice,
vary your word choice,
exhibit quiet poise.

High vocal tones,
you’ll need to avoid
and

you’ll need to omit
exclamation points.

Approach with a calm
intention,
collection &
lastly: bite back.

    Tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy. – Sir Isaac Newton
    There is a lot of truth to your poem. Dogs are easier to deal with than doctors…most of the time.
