It's not about just being teased or annoyed. It's about tired of being
judged, tired of people in your life betraying you, tired of all those who
have in some way ruined a part of your life. Annoyed and being teased isn't
even half of it. When you become an adult you aren't tease, you're judged.
People annoy you but you get over that. This poem is about the stream of
consiousness of Parker. She if fed up with all the bullshit she has lived
through and thinking to herself if only she had that gun she could releive
the aggrivation people put on her on a everydday basis. I'm sure many
people, me even, get so angry and frustrated at others to the extent you
wish they were just dead. Yeah its satire and a little humorous, but if you
truly look at it, it's not funny at all, it's just the real world and the
aggrivations that come a long with it.

even though most people may think this poem is unhealthy for teenager
minds, I find this poem to be a good show of what everyone feels at some
point in their lifetime. I also found it strangely hilaRIOUS!(:

I don't think it is about getting teased as it is about times when people
really annoy you. They don't even have to tease to be annoy; sometimes, all
they have to do is merely exist. I think that point of the poem.

I don't know if such was the goal but I thought this poem was hilarious!
And my grandma liked the "poison gas" part.
