Allergic to ragweed and cat hair,

To people that are unfair,

To those that are rich and can’t share,

To people who do not seem to otherwise care…


Allergic to dog food that smells so bad,

To anyone wearing plaid,

At one time I thought I was even allergic to my dad,

And to all Floridian chad…


Allergic am I to people who don’t like people,

To those that see nothing in life but strife,

To those that have no beliefs beyond their little worlds,

To them that cannot see beyond their internal wall,

To see a world of grace, honor and love, to see it all…

Well done, Ed! Much wisdom at play here.
Now the bit about plaid is unfair!-- so says the Scotch-Irish element of my heritage.

The last four lines covers a large part of the population and recently I believe I've met most of them - poor souls. Nice write.
