POETRY – These Things

(To the tune: “These are a Few of my Favourite Things”)

 

Obnoxious people who think that they’re funny,

Pokies in pubs taking most of my money,

Close unwashed bodies with smelly armpits,

These are a few things that give me the shits!

 

Drivers wearing hats and small men with attitude,

Friends borrowing money .. no repayment or gratitude,

Kids sent home from school .. hair covered with nits,

These are a few things that give me the shits!

 

Crying babies … condescension,

Falling out of Love,

The bitching that comes with Premenstrual Tension,

Are some things that piss me off!

 

One Nation Party and cars that will not start,

Loud, big-mouthed bullies who think that they are smart,

Techno remixes of old Disco hits,

These are a few things that give me the shits!

 

Silicon titties and men dressed like Elvis,

Heavy menstruation … pain wracking my pelvis,

Dogs running free tearing wildlife to bits,

These are a few things that give me the shits!

 

City traffic … winging neighbours,

Racial bigotry,

Conservative politics … crappy Drug Laws,

Are just some things that … SHIT ME!!
