– vs +


I pollute my lungs

breathing in acrid black smoke

that billows from you

the stench of anger

lingers on my hair and clothes



spewing venemous hatred

no silver lining

antidote for your

cancerous toxicity

    Love it! Awesome poem. Maybe we can pass out T-shirts to those toxic people that say TOXIC, then we can all avoid them, or hug them and tell them jokes until they laugh or explode…IDK, we might need to hold them down and tattoo TOXIC on their foreheads, some of them are pretty STUBBORN!

  4. YES! So true – wise words.

  5. Melanie, this is a powerful string of Haiku and with a message i couldn’t agree with more. time is too precious for TOXIC people!
