Respite and a Patron

To the library patron behind me -
You shouldn't be eating Chinese.
Please put your shoes back on -
How will I get my homework done??

There are no grounds
For those slurping sounds -
They won't even be drowned out
By this Mr. AZ listening bout.

Disgruntled - should I not be?
And now you're eating a croissant... Really?
There are other spots I could sit...
But not really. Everyone else has the tables and windows.

And I sit ahead of the patron
With no grounds to stand on -
Who's most likely enjoying respite
From people like me.
