Today I spent some time thinking about you,
Of how best I can give you a bad review.
You have forced me to become your constant critic,
In the hope that you’d turn away and not visit.
To many lives you’ve brought only misery,
Because of unawareness of your capability.
As long as there is pen and paper,
You are going to be a regular feature.
After I simplify your definition, they’ll know what you’re all about,
And for your signs and symptoms they’ll be on the lookout.
I will then make it explicitly clear,
That through complications a person’s life you try to ensnare.
Diabetes, they say sticks and stones may break your bones,
But these words are truly meant to put you in the 'no friend zone'.
I remain committed to the assassination of your character,
As long as there is pen and paper.
