No Help Required

Defensive, offensive

She spat out the words

No aid required

As if I’d not heard

Rejected, dejected

I’d just tried to help

No doormat was I

No useless young whelp

Imploring, ignoring

Whilst she on her knees

Why are folk so crazy

What mad worlds are these

Depleted, defeated

I just walked away

That nasty old lady

Got no help that day

Uneasy, so queasy

It all made me feel

When someone needs help

Why must they conceal

She Sees

A stark reveal
Words upon a page
Letters scrawled
She sees
The end
There is no: Dear
What a finale
Pathetic, really
So many years
Forced through a letterbox
Crammed without care
She sees only
The door
