Poetry

I Can't Stand People

I can't stand people with

Oddly shaped teeth

You know

Those with tombstones

Where enamel ought to be

Or worse still

With white powder in between

I can't stand people with

Oddly shaped beliefs

You know

Those with gods

Where thinking ought to be

Or worse still

With a classical degree

I can't stand people

What am I to do?

I can't stand people

Like you and you and you

I can't stand people

I'm on a short fuse

I can't stand people

That dish out some abuse

I can't stand people with

Oddly shaped needs

You know

Those with tears

Where laughter ought to be

Or worse still

With no generosity

I can't stand people

That can't stand me
