Some People: A Poem Comparing Fake and Genuine People

John is a contemporary poet who uses the rhyming styles of the classics to discuss current issues.


Some People

Some people are fake,

Some people are true.

Some respect only power,

Some respect me and you.

Some like to show off

And just seek attention.

Some people are humble,

Some don’t like a mention.

Some people, they gossip,

Some are doubting Thomases,

Some don’t keep commitments,

Others always keep promises.


Some criticize others,

They are so filled with hate.

Some admire other people

And tell them they’re great.

Some people act nice

With a hidden agenda.

Some people are helpful

To all race and gender.

So please be a person

Who is true to their word,

Who is humble and genuine

To all in this world.
