Show-off

It's funny how it's not enough to know you're right,
but you have to let everyone else know it too.
And then you wonder later how no one seems
to wanna be genuine friends with you.

    I was going to write a poem about this... you stole my idea!! :) Human nature at its worst again... how does that saying go... "it's easy to commiserate with people, but difficult to celebrate their success with them"

    Yeah i know a few people like that, they can be annoying sometimes, especially while at work! They usually won't quit telling you how right they were and how obviously wrong whoever was! Such gossip is usually how it goes, I really enjoyed reading this delightful poem this morning! What a lovely piece, Great Work!!
