Humble Pie

You stick your nose

Where it doesn’t belong

You think you know me

But you’re actually wrong

You’re always so carefully

Choosing your words

To build a box to confine me

And keep me unheard

You spew propaganda

To the rest of the herd

Its Β a cancerous noise

from a mind that’s disturbed

You believe your own myth

And think you’re a star

To which I inquire

Hello I’m me, and you are?

    1. If you find it, post it Lorraine! I’m glad you like this one and yes they are all around us but they never truly win. Bullies are their own reward. πŸ™‚

  1. I luv that reply above addressed to Paul, Val.
    Had to smile on that one! Only a cock could
    get on your nerves that early in the morning.

    It’s good to see others use rhymes now and then.
    You did fine by this one, and it really, really
    sounds like me when I go cruising through the
    poetry section here at wp and talk to strangers.
    Even if I’m nice and courteous, they sometimes
    see me as a stalker or some kind of weirdo.

    Have a great Monday! and thanks for stopping by.

    1. I’ve met them all Tree when I worked in sales. The Casino was the best place to meet big egos in empty shirts. Rhyme is important to attempt. I’m not opposed to the freedom of exploring work that has more latitude but for me, rhyme shouldn’t be forgotten altogether as it adds a certain element of warmth and/or humour. Thanks for dropping by and liking this verse. πŸ™‚

    1. It’s him and Bush and Blair and Brown and Clinton and Reagan and Mulroney and Martin and pick yer pope and Caesar and Caligula and Nero and Hitler and Herod and on and on and on going back in time to the first rooster who felt it was their duty to inform the peasants that they are the only human beings who are worthy to order us about and remove our personal liberties because we simply too stupid to understand how to use all the power.

    1. Thank you D for appreciating my wry drive by. Your opinion matters, as I admire you work especially. πŸ™‚

    1. Ohhh yeah, you KNOW politicians are all about these words. lol In particular, those who blur the line between public serpent servant and celebrity. You are very astute medicatedlady! πŸ™‚

  2. GReat ending! I liked the poem a lot val.

    But you know what gives you the clue about who the person is that he chooses his words very carefully, that has a reason, and probably not a good one,
    take care

    1. I’m glad you liked it mariana. This verse was actually inspired by a few people I know in real life who I see in a business capacity. I suppose many people can relate to having met someone who is full of false ego and this was essentially a poke in the eye to that sort of behaviour. Of course, I’m old and jaded and when I meet people like this they make me laugh at their ignorance. Hugs

    1. Thank you for appreciating this verse Calliope! LOL Yes, the world is never short of this type of person, but thankfully when you get some age on your old frame, they don’t affect you as much, if at all. HUGS
