Of course this is just a variation on the Langston Hughes poem, "Evil," which I love.
This poem reminds me of my personality to the max. As a girl (with strabismus and pink glasses, as depicted in the picture), I was always the one persisting in some irritating enterprise ad nauseum . . .
So now, as a theoretical adult, I keep thinking I am going to take a break from parodies, and I think I can.
