why?

I love you...
really, I do

but certain
words
you say
place you in a
category
of people
I disagree with

I know that
every person
in this category
thinks and acts
alike

and I also know
I am morally right
to declare them
morally wrong

so just ignore
the derisive names,
the arrogant manner,
my passive-aggressive
manipulation

I really do love you
and you'll feel it
just stop using those words,
start nodding in agreement

  1. I don't agree with this at all! I am teasing! I like the message(I hate sheep) and love the format, where you have certain words in bold. Good write, you.

  2. This was a very specific reaction to a person we know who has a talent for grouping people into categories, labeling them, and dismissing them, but then trying to convince them it was all in good fun. They've done a great job of crushing people, and that kind of thing really just sets me off.
