I hate you !.......poem

Updated on August 25, 2014

The old man hates the kid
the one with the funny pierced nose

The kid with piercings hates the cops
and his hate really shows

The church goer hates the preacher the
the preacher hates the devil

The neighbor hates the new walmart
another mall on the level

The muslim hates the christian the christian
hates the world

The flagman hates the traffic the
traffic hates flags unfurled

The dancer hates the clumsy mover the clumsy
mover hates the rest

But I believe that hates the problem
and if we'd just learn to Hate -Hate ........well that would be the best

      Way to go Ed. Now if only we could turn all of this hate into love. Sigh. Hope you have a great weekend.

      Nothing directed in these lines other than poetic licence -there's just too much hate everywhere people ! While I believe our culture show less hate to others , there's still far too much . That's all , thank you all for reading !......Ed

      Yes, the world is so full of hate. I am wondering about that line too that the Christian hates the world. True Christians are called to love, for if we do not love, we do not know God.

      So true. We need to start hating the world, things we do not understand and allow love to flow in our hearts. Great Poem!
