Prompts (Delayed Rejoinders)

You’ve been the target of offensive speech,
or someone criticized you without cause,
or yelled from where your volley cannot reach
and made you sore, but broke no stated laws.
You crafted a reply, but not in time
to let it fly. You had to tote it home
in mind. But you can breathe it into rhyme –
just make it inspiration for a poem.
