An Amazing Amount of Energy


No offering of peace can I create
Which will make your rank hatred to abate
And since I did all of nothing to
Make an enemy of hateful you
Ere you started on your present course
Dedicate resentful self unto
I must assume that hatred really is
Dedicated not to me, but you

So much energy you must invest
I do hope that investment well reward
I wouldn’t last so very long
Stomping both my feet that hard
Haven’t met — are you perchance
Composed exclusively of lard?
How is it you all semblance
Of well meaningness discard?

Have you been always coddled by
Everyone you thought a friend
I can’t believe such hatred try
Ever its actions to amend
I think they must have had
Self serving reasons to pretend
Or that you’re simply hateful set
On competition to the end
