The wording is just like name calling on the street, it might be the real case as well. This poem is far beyond normal blaming poem rather a death curse to the lord, the most vicious blaming poem among the Book of Songs.

鄘风 相鼠
佚名

相鼠有皮,人而无仪!
人而无仪,不死何为?

相鼠有齿,人而无止!
人而无止,不死何俟?

相鼠有体,人而无礼!
人而无礼,胡不遄死?
