The Hater

by Steven Gowin

Did you ever have one of those days?
You look at people
and despise them all.

That one's an idiot, a fool.
That one a poser.
That one a liar.
What stupid hair.

That one's a lackey, a yes man.
That one shallow.
That one a dick head
Such an insufferable voice.

Yes, today is one of those clear days.
You see it all,
and malice is correct.
