Take an insult

Towards an insult, pacific one might be.
For why waste time on listening to a fool,
Unless the mocker knocked your painful knee?

Alternatively, thank her for her plea
And pay for her to go right back to school
Towards an insult, pacific one might be.

Go as far as offering a fee
Ask her if he’s heard of old George Boole
Unless the lady kicked  your painful knee?

Ask her for more detail verbally
Ask her if’s she has a log at Yule
Towards an insult, specific one can be.

I returned an insult with my eye
A dirty look, there is no final rule
Unless she picked you for your pretty knee

A well-versed tongue may be a useful tool
Take care with teachers as they’re rarely cool
Towards an insult, apathetic one might be.
Unless the cruelty  wrecked your sympathy
