Treasure Island

Josh Sternberg

(08/19/1982 / Brattleboro, VT)

I hate


I hate the ways
Cold weather stays
Longer than it should
I hate candy
At Halloween
That tastes and smells like wood
I hate Republicans
And Democrats as well
And I hate Indian food
And the way it makes you smell
I hate crappy drivers and
How they break the laws
I hate cats and how they shed
And how they use their claws
I hate eggs when overcooked
And the smell of pee
Or when I get overlooked
At the DMV
I hate the things that I've done
To get money or drugs
I hate how much conscience feels
Slimy like a million slugs
I hate what I have become
And what I see in the mirror
I hate I can't see this all
My vision should be clearer
I hate how I lie to myself
To make it not as hard
To feel the pain that
I created broken into shards
I hate artificial grape
And snacks flavored with ranch
I hate when people won't wear belts
Or even pull up their pants
I hate when Summer's over
And you lose a couple friends
I also hate when I'm finished
And it all comes to an end.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
