I Hate It! - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

This is why I agreed to buying meat already spiced
though I can't eat such condimented meat, and now
I can sip a vodka without fearing the backlash - all
because trying to do things right had no effect what-
soever, I might as well give up and die right now

This is no life, not even a half-life, every zombie and
professional vampire will probably tell you their sub-
zero existence is exciting enough, fighting the living,
but I have to play the role of someone alive; therefore
able to survive and forced to translate a technical text

Which bores me to death - yet I cannot die, more's
the pity - I HATE IT - I HATE IT - I HATE IT!
