Some invite my contempt,
Others, my ridicule,
Some are opposite sublime,
But none deserves my time.
Inspired by the following exchange between Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) and Ugarte (Peter Lorre) in Casablanca (1942):
Ugarte: You despise me, don’t you?
Rick: If I gave you any thought, I probably would.
