Time enough for hate

you ask me why i hate
go look at the rivers and seas
you ask me why i hate
yet you can’t see the forest for the trees
you ask me why i hate
but you struggle to breathe
you ask me why i hate
because you demand equality
you ask me why i hate
and you curse those in poverty
you ask me why i hate
while you gorge yourself to obesity

i’ll tell you why i hate
go take a look at yourself
i’ll tell you why i hate
because of your arrogant ignorance
i’ll tell you why i hate
because of your self-entitled posturing
i’ll tell you why i hate
because of your active idleness
i’ll tell you why i hate
because of your fraudulent behavior

i hate
because you’re destroying
the things i love
