I cannot say "It is okay , when it is not "
Crude may be. But that's okay.
I cannot say " It was not your fault , when actually it was "
Much to everyone's chagrin . But that's not my fault.
I cannot let go when someone jumps the queue .
'Ue' doesn't jostle up 'Ue' to get into the Q-u-e-u-e ! And So I was taught to always fall in line .
I cannot move on when I see an atrocity .
So what if affability is not my middle name ?
I cannot agree that chivalry and politeness are synonymous.
Chivalry is condescending . Politeness is comforting.
I cannot fit myself to moulds formed to societal norms .
Because my mother taught me never to lie.
