Reading the Narcissist
I will keep in mind the things you wrote
Of your station in life, your bitter travail,
Your messages so purposefully penned
And how, despite it all, you can't ever fail.
I will have no truck with narcissistic drivel
Your excessive expressions of superiority,
Think not for one moment you are so great
When showing your feelings of inferiority.
I have dealt with many like you in my life
Who tried to convince me of their eloquence,
But I have learned to recognize self-pride,
Foolish, deluded persons of no consequence,
To those who put me down for succeeding,
Time soon came when I did the reading.
