Ten things I hate:
The fake pastor’s automobile.
The almighty attitudes of some.
The young heart of a player.
Nasty habits that lead to addiction.
The constant friction between a husband
and his wife.
The mentalities of those that live in denial.
The ghosts in my grandmother’s closet.
And the aunt that loves funerals.
The cycles of poverty and the systems
that keep us from moving up.
