Rude people are metal
grating on metal.
They are the times you leave
and forget that one thing.
Like sitting on the bus next to
a five-pack-a-day smoker.
Rude people are the rip you find once
you get to the dance.
They are the last summer mosquito stuck
in your window screen.
Like the nails
on a chalkboard.
