Your absence never noticed but in contrast,
To your presence, never forgotten.
Uninvited guest whose rudeness, vast,
Colossal, whose manners foul and rotten,
Odious, ought to be ignored and yet
Will not be.  Egotist! Attention seeking
Bastard! Do you think we owe a debt
Of gratitude, philosophically speaking,
For teaching us appreciation
Of our lives when you're not hanging round?
Did we issue an invitation?
Why should we rejoice and thus compound?
You try our patience with each sudden blast,
But we shall overcome, and throw you out at last.
