“Evil” by Langston Hughes Poetry


Looks like what drives me crazy

Don’t have no effect on you –

But I’m gonna keep on at it

Till it drives you crazy, too.

I love this poem. Shows perseverance and an ability to annoy others until they give in and like the same things you do. I can definitely mention that my love of “A Song of Ice and Fire” has driven many of my friends to madness and me mentioning that “books are not the same as movies” has increased the read-drive among my peers.
