Identity Crisis

How much do I hate myself?

As much as I hate calories

As much as I hate the patriarchy

Or Donald Trump

(Maybe not quite as much as him)

As much as I hate hockey socks

Or the colour beige

Or beige hockey socks for that matter

Not as much as I hate sexist teachers.

 

How much do I love myself?

As much as I love plain popcorn

And pigoons

As much as I love flannel shirts

Archie Costello

And swearing quietly

Whilst mentally giving people the finger.

  1. Hi! I loved your poem. Kind of funny. I love popcorn and have a disdain for Donald Trump too. Shhh Don’t tell. I try not to reveal my politics to my readers. Wouldn’t want to offend my Republican subscribers. I loved the attitude in your poem, funny, creative, defiant. Janice

    1. Hi Janice! Glad you liked the poem- I was a bit hesitant about mentioning anything at all political, but decided to go for it… I know that not everyone will share my opinions, but I am pleased someone who does has enjoyed it!
