THE COMPLETE MISANTHROPIST, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I love to think of things I hate
Last Line: And what's more, I hate you.
Subject(s): Hate; Misanthropy

I love to think of things I hate
In moments of mopishness;
I hate people who sit up straight,
And youths who smirk about their "date,"
And the dates who smirk no less.

I hate children who clutch and whine,
And the arrogant, virtuous poor;
And critical connoisseurs of wine,
And everything that is called a shrine,
And Art and Literature.

I hate eggs and I hate the hen;
I hate the rooster, too.
I hate people who wield the pen,
I hate women and I hate men;
And what's more, I hate you.
