get the f— out!


Some people like to complain about everything all the time.

Ironically, others complain about others complaining and then claim they’re not complaining at all.

Some people like to throw grenades into community forums just for fun.

This poem is about all of that 😛

get the fuck out!

get the fuck out!

some people like
to scream and shout
find endless things
to bitch about

the light’s too bright
the plows are late
my garbage got
left by the gate

the sky’s not blue
it’s bottle green
pollution is the
the worst we’ve seen

cats roam free
they’re everywhere
dogs poop and pee
on our front stair

council sucks
they’re just dead wrong
sure they deserve
to get the gong

we need more houses
no we don’t
pay higher taxes
oh no we won’t

food and gas
are so expensive
one and all are
too defensive

change is highly
we prefer things
old and dated

the newbies
are the ones to blame
they fuck stuff up
it’s such a shame

they’ve wrecked
the place we dearly loved
out the door
they should be shoved

once they’re gone
it’ll be all good
back in our friendly

the air will clear
so will the streets
we’ll ban complaints
and meet and greets

that said, it could be
dire straits
with only our
own selves to hate

but hey, we’re not
complaining here
we’re only spreading
christmas cheer

the kind that
ends in angry threads
that make good folk
just shake their heads
