I Hate Everyone Except You

I hate the neighbour’s noisy dog
I hate the neighbours too
I hate every human being
Everyone except you

I hate the ones who keep me waiting
And the ones who talk a lot
I hate the ones who think they’re smart
And the ones who think they’re not
I hate the ones who are always asking
The questions that they’ve got
And the ones who are always giving
Responses on the spot

I wish that Earth was devoid of life
Except for me and you
For I hate all the human beings
And many more things too

I hate my friend who keeps forgetting
My money that he owes
I hate the birds that chirp all day
Don’t you get my woes?
I hate the clouds that bring the rain
I hate it when it snows
Am I always so miserable?
Oh well nobody knows

Nobody except you, my darling
What can they do to me?
I have given only you the rights
To make me more happy

  1. (I hope you don’t get this comment twice. There seems to be a glitch with WordPress on mobile.)
    You’re getting a number of preachy & disapproving comments from people looking down their nose at your “hate” instead of noting the playfulness and cleverness of the poem! They’re proving its point with precision. 😆 The fact that you wrote it at all is evidence you’re not a “hater”. Just another human using art to vent; any emotion can be fodder for creativity. Screw the drones.
    There’s a war against “unhappiness” or “discomfort”, or just anything that doesn’t scream happy happy, joy joy… it depresses me with its shallow conformity. I look around and see massive schools of fish pivoting as one to follow the current thing (pun not intended). Our society has turned into a dull contest of sameness and compliance. Who can agree and comply the hardest?!
    PS: keep this quote from Stephen King in your back pocket: “If you expect to succeed as a writer, rudeness should be the second-to-least of your concerns. The least of all should be polite society and what it expects. If you intend to write as truthfully as you can, your days as a member of polite society are numbered, anyway.”
    PS2: i hope the comment goes through because I’m not trying a third time. I hate repeating myself!😜

  2. Hate’s so easy to do and to say,
    but with the time we’ve left, there is another Way…
    Luke 6:27 But to those of you who will listen, I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, ..
