Bitter – Written Saturday 8th May 1999 (Aged 24)

Bitter

why so bitter?
so young,
why so nasty
were you never taught any respect?
why so arrogant
with your nine to five routine
your unimportant nine to five
to which you are a slave
it has made you narrow minded
and you spit hate, in between the fear

so young,
so boastful on so many thousands a year
so damning of others
who have not done the same
with one steady but useless lover

so young,
yet bitching and rude
even to those around you
with your shallow television opinions
and newspaper sense
you are so shallow yet somehow so dense
why so bitter?

so young,
do you not have an ounce of respect
for anyone or yourself




James Garratt – Saturday 8th May 1999
