I Hate People...... [humor? (I hope so): some personal thoughts]

Don’t YOU just hate some people? Wouldn’t you like them gone?
Some human-types I do despise, though some people over them do fawn.

The first that comes to mind is the “no-hands” bicycle-rider.
Driving my car past one yesterday, I wanted to broadside her.
I suppose they really aren’t such an awful lot and don’t deserve my hate,
but when I see them doing what I CAN’T do, upon my brain it does grate.

Other types which I’ve come to hate are some well-known mega-jocks.
The way they hit baskets, home runs, and finish lines.....does blow off my socks.
And what about singers, actors, and comedians who have achieved great fame?
Yes, they too I hate so badly. They make me feel so lame.

And then there are those men, whose lives I’d love to wreck;
the ones who, faced with contrary wives, remain CALM, .....while I’d want to ring her neck!

Okay! You’ve guessed it, perhaps. I really could never hate them.
But it seems I’m a dull piece of dusty gravel, and they are sparkling gems.
They’re NOT an “awful lot”, I don’t “despise” them, and I’d NOT wreck their lives for real.
To tell the truth, gosh darn it, it’s just envy I do feel.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

mostly this is true...the envy parts. i hope 'contrary' can mean 'difficult to deal with'; that's what i mean. fawn is NOT the animal. and i usually walk rather than drive.

    True... we hate some.. we want to eliminate some and we want to live in a world devoid of them.
    But the cops are there and the judiciary is very much there..
    Thanks a lot for writing a unique poem.

    Hello Bri very funny enjoyed it very much and have to admit i sometimes feel envious i think everyone does

    A good poem with good humour. Good that you brought out the difference in being hateful and envious.
    Yes, 'contrary' perfectly describes the wives, difficult to deal with.
    And yes, fawn is flattery and not the animal, however dear!
    Thanks for the note, it does its part.

    Har har har har..ha ha ha ha ha..i love all the lines, because its full of truth and a gallant sense. if i were in your shoes, i wouldn't have the courage to write about the things those i envy about, but you are so gallant to do that...very nice my friend.

    I looked upon a ring...and i looked at precious gem, it was surrounded by only a steel..only a steel...i wont say the steel steal the preciousness of the ring...it just a steel and it never be a gold by burning it...what i can see is it keep the gem at the center...tight...if people you dislike be in front of you...find at least something you like even it a little...when we so angry we ignored if they ever precious inside...if it difficult to deal with, dont deal at all..as hate will never dissolve in peace but always make you feel bad only...try to accept though it hard to not reject_Soul
