American Rhetoric: Movie Speech

"10 Things I Hate About You" (1999)


Katarina "Kat" Stratford Delivers 'Hate' Poem in Class


I hate the way you talk to me

and the way you cut your hair.

I hate the way you drive my car;

I hate it when you stare.

I hate your big dumb combat boots

and the way you read my mind.

I hate you so much it makes me sick.

It even makes me rhyme.


I hate it -- I hate the way you're always right;

I hate it when you lie.

I hate it when you make me laugh;

even worse when you make me cry.

I hate it when you're not around

and the fact that you didn't call.



But mostly I hate the way

I don't hate you --




not even close,

not even a little bit,

not even at all.
