“Oh honey, let’s go somewhere on a nice holiday,” Mildred said. “I know, we can go to thebeach. It will be so much fun.”
“I can’t,” Frank said. “I am way too busy at work.”
“Please, Frank,” Mildred pleaded. “I need something fierce for us to get away for a few days.”
“I ain’t taking you on a holiday to the beach, Mildred,” Frank said. “There will be too many people there and I hate people, plain and simple.”
“Oh why did I ever marry a misanthrope like you, Frank?” Mildred whined.
“It was inevitable, my dear Mildred.”

Your writing is magical
Your words put together discretely
Yet in a beautiful style
There is a kindness to your voice
A nuance driving us to ponder
And that cajoles us to think even more deeply

I don’t want to hear any more of your bullshit
You tell lie after lie without giving it a second thought
You have no heart
You have no soul
You have no feelings
You have no empathy
You have no conscience
You think only of yourself
Only of what’s good for you
With no regard for others
You are a classic narcissist
You are shameless
You are a cold, calculating man
You surround yourself with sycophants
Who willingly do your bidding
You are not welcome here
I want you to leave
