I was told that I hate the world, and that I sneered down my nose at it,

But don’t you hate the World too?

Don’t you hate that no body cares about the starving children in Africa?

Don’t you hate Tasmanian paper pulp mills?

And people who clear the Amazon?

Don’t you hate the fact people must fear for their lives so much they have to flee their homes?

Don’t you hate Global Warming and burning fossil fuels?

Don’t you hate the unnecessary hunting of the whales?

Don’t you hate war with no purpose or end?

Don’t you hate not being able to do anything about anything?

Don’t you hate the World too?

But as much as that person was right, they were also wrong.

Because what I hate is the destroying of the thing I love,

The World.
