Some cannot help their meanness. Ignore them.
THE MEAN AND THE MALEVOLENT: a sonnet


Why fret that some people cannot improve
Themselves and their ways that demean others?
Possibly they just cannot ever move
With peace when in company of brothers.


Why give much importance to empty words?
Why be piked by their mean, ill- mannered pricks?
Not highly intelligent are all nerds,
Though they may know a few computer tricks.

The mean may have some vile impediment
That prevents them from behaving gently.
A twig that is in childhood wrongly bent
Is likely to grow malevolently.

Ignore them for they know not what they do.
Why should an insolvent person you sue?
