there ain’t many people I don’t hate

 

people ask me, why do you hate veterans so much?

 

for the record

I got friends who are veterans

 

but I do hate veterans generally

 

I got personal reasons

and I also know right from wrong

 

fact is, there ain’t many people I don’t hate

 

I hate bankers

pimps

and all the other capitalists

 

I hate the slumlord who collects the rent

 

I hate my neighbors and their dogs

and their rotten kids

 

I hate all children

 

I hate happy families

 

I hate teachers cuz they’re mostly losers

 

I hate doctors cuz they’re mostly

crooks

 

I hate cops too

 

except for the blonde

blue-eyed

angelic

police

woman

who arrested me that one night

 

she can cuff me again

anytime

she

wants.

 

 

bodhi

 

when the sky and your mind

come crashing down

 

when you look up from the sidewalk

at the blinding sun

 

when you realize the stray cats

are your brothers and sisters

 

that’s when the Buddhas will come soaring down

in divine yellow robes

 

and orange trees will grow

in every yard

 

and the white trash will choke

on their hatred

 

the poor white trash

and the rich white trash

 

and no more keeping people out

with walls on the border

 

and no more drone strikes

or Uncle Sam providing weapons to terrorists

 

no more wars on drugs

and no more flags or anthems

 

and you’ll realize that all that really matters

is a bead of rainwater on a poppy leaf.
