“You Do You”

John_Hill_and_John_Linthicum_shaking_hands

There are
few things
more
distasteful
than
watching someone who’s
nasty by nature
be
nice
for my
convenience.

It’s like
a dog
that wears
a tuxedo
or a mannequin
come to life
that’s still
a little
stiff
and can’t get
the facial expressions
quite right.

It makes
me
very uneasy

and
I just wish
they’d take
their shirt off
and swing it
’round
their heads
and scream,
“FUCK OFF!”
and
be
done with it.

Because
as rude
as that
would be

watching them
pretend
to give a shit
about what I have
to say
about
the weather
is
even ruder.
