Humanity i love you

   Humanity i love you
   because you would rather black the boots of
   success than enquire whose soul dangles from his
   watch-chain which would be embarrassing for both

   parties and because you
   unflinchingly applaud all
   songs containing the words country home and
   mother when sung at the old howard

   Humanity i love you because
   when you're hard up you pawn your
   intelligence to buy a drink and when
   you're flush pride keeps

   you from the pawn shop and
   because you are continually committing
   nuisances but more
   especially in your own house

   Humanity i love you because you
   are perpetually putting the secret of
   life in your pants and forgetting
   it's there and sitting down

   on it
   and because you are
   forever making poems in the lap
   of death Humanity

   i hate you  

E. E. Cummings
