The Likeables - Poem by Rob Knetsch

we, all, we all everyone
know a few, or many, or one
of them that are so likeable
you just have to like them

even when they're not friendly
don't greet you, don't send
a card to you for your birthday
and not even for christmas

they can be mean, very mean
immoral, or hostile, or even evil
covertly or openly humiliating
teasing, abusing, tormenting

could be that you are not aware
of them treating you so badly
or you tried but can't stop them
because they are so likeable
