The Hate Look
Two old men walk into
A local market and stop
At the dessert case near the door.
"We're too late," they say together,
"All the peanut butter cookies are gone."
They come here every day.
One man wears a mask on his face,
The other on his wrist.
They keep chattering on
While the rest of the customers (the limit is 5)
Look at them aghast.
The cashier intervenes.
The wrist masked man realizes his error.
"So that's why you're all giving me the hate look."
