Cherished Conversation

The art of conversation
Being social and polite
Faded with advancing age
With the gallop of time
Way too impatient
To put up with the unkind
To tolerate false smiles
Sit listening and wondering
What they want from me
For their intent is untrue
They either don’t absorb
Or never bother to ask
A thing about me
And yet I should remember
Their detailed life plan
So these days I opt not to go
Where I’m expected to mingle
With too many
From a foreign tribe
And I value the gems that I’ve found
In my closest friends
