The Fake Laughter Of The Polite

I cannot stand

the fake laughter

of the polite.


Laughter isn’t meant

to be faked.


I cannot stand

the fake sympathy’s

of the polite.


I know you don’t really care.


I cannot stand

the Jaywalker

who jaywalks

20 feet

next

to a

crosswalk


I don’t know why this one irks me so

but it does,

and oh does it.


I cannot stand

the liars,

who lie,

so they can seem

polite,


You just want to feel good about yourself.


I cannot stand

The needy person.

Leave me alone.

I am not your puppet,

for your amusement.

Get your own damn water.


I cannot stand

the fearful people,

afraid of everything-

afraid to live.


I cannot stand

the zombie.

The ones who never take a stance;

never choses a side-

never believes in anything-

never tries to change the world-

never speaks up-

they hardly exist…


They live

only to not offend

the delicate ego’s

of polite.


-C.H.
