Your Problem

January 4, 2010
By , Arlington Heights, IL
I could give you a list
Of reasons why
You drive me crazy
I mean cuckoo bananas
Off the wall
Can I duct tape your mouth?
Because I might
Go insane
Because this is not just
About me
This one is you.
And don’t think that I’ve
Overlooked that fact
Because you are
Ridiculously particular
And you don’t even take the time
To get to know
What you are criticizing
Because if it’s not your way
Then it’s not
You are over-involved.
You analyze everything
And you have a tendency to
Every little thing
And honestly
I find that unnecessary.
And it’s not just
Who thinks this
And it’s not just
Who should give a crap
Because it’s
I mean
Everyone thinks this
And no one has the guts
To tell you
But me.
Because I am sick of
Being a liar
To protect your fragile male ego.
And I’m so sorry that you used
To have
Confidence issues
But that is just
Not my problem.
And I realize you think
Hot s*** now
But just let me be
The first
To burst that
Inflated bubble
Of pride and cockiness
That you call your head
So chock-full of a**hole
That it is almost brimming over
With pomp
And just tell you
You’re not as smart
As you think you are.
And you think you’re clever
But you’re
Confusing cleverness
With conceit.
So do me a favor
And try to keep
Your words to yourself.
If I hear one more noise
This little time clock
Beeping in my head might
And you will be the
Poor unfortunate soul
Caught in the crossfire.
