 ‘People hate that i flip two cigarettes
Upside down in each pack
for luck,
But I hate that people notice 
When you gain three pounds,
But not when you buy a new hat. 
I’ve been told that the way I sleep
With one leg draped over
The person lying next to me
Is annoying,
But I think it’s annoying
When people tell me
I look pretty, 
But only when I paint my face. 
I’ve heard that old men
Like to touch the girls who work late at bars, 
But I want to know
Why they never kiss the women they married
fourty-two years ago. 
I’ve noticed that mothers teach their daughters
That it’s rude to refuse a hug
From an uncle they’ve met three times,
But forget to teach them
That they aren’t obliged to kiss
The boy who paid for dinner. 

I like this poem. I’m not entirely sure who wrote it, but I think it’s great.
