You asked me
"isn't that hypocritical?"
and I answered with logic
and fervour. "No, because..."
and I explained.

I should have known.
You didn't listen.
"Different people have
different views",
I read.

A subtle emotional ache
pulled within me, and again
I tried.

Explained my position.
How it contrasted with that of
the "hypocrite".

You just re-sent the text.
Then brushed away my response.
Accused me of taking things
too seriously.

Bewildered by your obtusity,
I went silent.

No one likes being called a hypocrite.
