You know what I hate?
I hate when words scramble to be written
only to disappear when I sit down
to write them.
I hate having to pee as soon as I leave the restroom.
I hate that every time I open my email, I see another plea for
from a socio-political organization
in a world of chaos and disharmony.
I hate that so many of these organizations must exist.
I hate the current climate.
and I’m NOT talking about temperature.
I hate that Science is treated as fictitious
and Education is a disease of the mind.
I hate that History keeps repeating
despite ALL the evidence.
But I absolutely LOVE
when a complete stranger treats me like a respected friend
as he wishes me a great day while
patting me on the shoulder
with a folded newspaper
on his way out the door.
