Clearly, as the title states, this is dedicated to the person who sits behind me at every movie I go to. Remarkably they change Gender, Appearance, and eating habits from film to film....but they are always there.


Upon re-reading this I noticed it is not funny at all..just terribly hostile....but, nevertheless, it is VERY inspired.

Dear Babar.

Frankly movies are quite expensive, even on cheap night too,
and I paid to hear this actor speak, not listen endlessly to you.

If you are so legitemately stupid that you can't possibly follow along,
then why do you even go to films, and aggravate the throng?

Now I see that there are three such fok, as inconsiderate as you,
I guess they are your translaters, clearly deaf and lost like you.

The reason you have to speak so loud, you friends struggling to hear,
is that there is a movie playing, so please SHUT UP MY DEAR!

Do you not hear the people, they sigh and 'shhh' to object,
can't you realize we're here to see this film, called "Blair Witch Project"

I know you feel we paid the same, so to spew opinions is your right,
but, trust me, you've nothing uselful to say, we've been hearing it all night.

So please, retire to the lobby, where you may speak with ease,
'cause believe me lady if you stay here you'll be covered in Nacho Cheese.

So when next a movie you wish to see, just stay home and drool.
You'll probabaly offend a few less folk you loud-mouthed, impolite fool.

PW

I have felt this way many times. People at movies need to be more considerate of others.
Good job, poetwheel.

PW: I think we can all relate! LOL. Your poem reminded me of a long ago incident... watching The Exorcist with my then-husband and his family... and 3 pre-teens behind us (who shouldn't have even been admitted! *G*) One had read the book and kept up a non-stop synopsis. Repeated shhh's did nothing... not being the subtle type, I asked them bluntly to please hush... the chatter continued. Finally, the scene with the crucifix was coming up... and the little book reader boldly stated "this is where she MENSTRUATES with the crucifix!" Our whole row cracked up... *G* And our laughter at her naive faux pas did what our requests had failed to do... the noisy trio moved! *G*

My friend Poetwheel,
I know how ya feel,
Ya go to a flick,
And there's always some prick,
That sits down behind you,
With the friends they have few,
They spend a week's wages,
With friends they've not seen in ages,
To talk about the last movie they talked through,
Very loudly so you can hear too...

When I was a kid and went to the show,
And people were talking, I'd get up and go,
To get popcorn and a very large coke,
Put a hole in the bottom, my finger in the hole,
Come back down the aisle, drop a penny or two,
Ask the loud talker, to hold my coke for a few,
I'd hand them the cup, then run to the back,
The coke would drain out the bottom, all over their lap!

How is it, that the theater can be empty except for me and the one other person who insists on sitting either directly behind me or directly in front of me?

Tip: if the chatter continues..seek out an employee, tell them your movie is being ruined, if they don't quell the monsters, they should give you a free pass.

I really got a chuckle out of this! But you're right, it's not really very funny at all ! I have alot of patience, but it does wear thin quick in the theatre! Great job on such a troubling subject !

When I first read your poem I missed the h and read it as "aggravate the thong" which might explain the noise...
but in any event... enjoyed the poem...
