I do have a few pet peeves, so I've picked some things that bug me (litterbugs really bug me) and have written three little verselets thereupon.
I'm sure some people see red when others make up their own words, so I've made one up and used it here, just for you.

inconsiderate drivers might annoy me
but inveterate gossips make me cringe
“I hear he’s an alky and he beats up on his wife”
instead, please tell me how it makes you feel.
is there some way you can help
rather than talking?
and how do you know the rumor’s really real?
litterbugs should be exterminated
and polluters dangled from their chimneys high
so they can breathe the smoke they have created—
the smoke that’s making other people die
poor grammar makes me cringe,
and texting makes me whinge
about my husband texting during dinner;
but chewing his gum so I can hear
him chewing right beside my ear
in my own list of peeves might be the winner
