They say patience is a virtue

So when I send my article to a newspaper

I wait and wait

Will it get accepted

Or rejected

Will they ever accept my writing again?

Who the hell knows my dear reader

60 articles later and I still don’t know where I stand

An incredible achievement, believe you me

This silence of theirs annoys me

If you don’t want to read my articles anymore just say so

I’ll accept it and respect it

I’ll move on

I deserve as much after writing 60 articles you’d think

Apparently, not so

Welcome to Confucianism
With its social rituals and hierarchy obsession

It feels like we’re back in the Middle Ages again
