Hobby Mocking

This is Patrick

Excitement at the thought
Of indulging
In that you love dearly
Sharing your knowledge
To all who listen
Proclaiming your hobby
As dear to your heart
Who knew you would turn sour

Another love is shown
By others on the ‘Net
Their big event is looming
Feeding their excitement
The fervor growing
As they share their knowledge
To all who listen
It is a holiday for their fandom

You cannot have this
Their hobby is foolish rot
Which you declare
Stepping into chats
To mock and tease
Enjoying the rage and tears
As you sour their big day
Instead of moving on

What is this?
An event for what you love
Everyone must know
You shout it from the rooftops
And dance with your hobby kin
Until the joy is punctured
By one who mocks and teases
How do you like it?

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
