SUPERIOR - not the lake

SUPERIOR – not the lake

To me there are no persons drearier
Than those who think themselves superior,
Think everything in life that they do
Is a little, no, MUCH better than you (do)

She didn’t come right out and make a claim
Not sophisticate was to give it name
As example – I mentioned my dentist
Hers, compared to others by far the best
Sadly, my doctor’s name, somehow, came up
Hers had won the Johns Hopkins world class cup
When I mentioned housing she had a ball
When compared to hers, the Taj Mahal was small
Dare I mention our Jeep parked in the back?
She’d boast of her three bran new Cadillacs
Fed her dog ‘Vet’s Laboratory Test’
Even claimed her Fido’s droppings were best
 
         Then, one day –

Joy! When they had to call an ambulance -
Her chronic case of painful flatulence

    Pompeii- before he fell they raised him higher, that the fall might be the greater!

    Chuckles and appreciating the sentiment! Seems that often those Fido droppings are left for us lessors to step in, or at least pick up for her:-)

    YES!!!!!!! farting is such sweet sorrow. I love watching snobs shrivel in shame. I guess you could say she had an "air" about her.

    Nice poem. I have known people like that. Sometimes they are not all that happy. They still lack something. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Oh well, not fun speaking with this sort of person cause they don't listen to what you may have to say, Daver. I knew someone like that...her's was always bigger, more and better.:) Sort of diminishes your own who. Painting downstairs today, Kiwi is going to wake up one morning and not recgnize her own house.:(( I kinda liked the old chipped paint. Keep well, Love, Mikki

    hahaha, you delivered a whopper of a poem this time. VERy humorous. I love it. As for snow, we are getting it right now. But I doubt it will be as bad as yours or as it was here last week.
