Dedicated to all the Despicable YOUs out there…
you know who you are and
au contraire to what you believe
your despicable being is not the fault of
I have watched you
and my observations confirm
its all about you
YOU are despicable everyday because
by your own admission
YOU always belittle those you know,
don’t know, and don’t want to know you;
YOU are despicable because you admit
that you laugh, condemn and scorn others
for no other reason than
they can exist and thrive without your permission.
