I’ll take that as a comment

Social interactions can be so very hard

By a seemingly simple nuance, a relationship is marred

I understood your words and friendly you seemed

But I missed an important clue and error was deemed

This has now upset you as you think I let you down

And this response saw my brow in a confused frown

You read this frown as anger and your response has meant

That all attempts to communicate are spent


You see I didn’t realise that what you said to me

Was an instruction of what you thought should be

I didn’t see your crown that declared you king of us

And see now that we could have avoided all this fuss

I really am so sorry and I can only lament

I should have responded “I’ll take that as a comment”
