We each have our own perception,
that may, at times, cause misconception--
what’s right for one is not another’s “cup of tea".
What I might find stimulating,
clever, subtle, invigorating--
there are those of you who never would agree.
And you’ll discover I rarely waste
buttery compliments or false praise,
I much prefer ‘old-fashioned’ honesty.
So before I make you all ‘defensive’,
let me go on the offensive--
and offer you this, my blanket apology.
