It's all an illusion

To suspect collusion
Many folks opinionate
But very few tend to state

When something read pleases
But are full of teases ...
When it's something other
Than their well-known covers

So they mail a nasty comment
And then your day is bent ...
Swallowing hard your pride
Your pain is undenied ...

But you soothe your feathers
Knowing you're not tethered
By another's implication ...
Your work is just a vacation

- Tristram
