When Did We Stop...

When did we stop
Saying good morning to one another
When did we start
Looking each other up and down and rolling our eyes
Side eye glare I call it
For no apparent reason
Hateful spirits
Unleashing negativity into the atmosphere
Representing those of minor home training
Happily presenting the syndrome of
Leading others into the destruction of doom
When does emotional intelligence come into play?
When do we teach our children and consumers
That our attitudes are not what we want them to exemplify
We are a reflection of our community, schooling, and surroundings
Choose not the attitude of others
Choose to be more than society expects you to be
