Intellectual – Written Sunday 27th April 2014 (Aged 39)

Intellectual

i do need to express how i feel
do you know,
that you need to know,
how i feel
you are an intellectual bully
your intelligence is in no doubt
but it is now a cosh
with serious clout
you put us in our place
with dented self esteem
you play chess with us all
and its checkmate on my feelings
it is a pat on the head
and a lovely smile
one that comes with education
and stomach churning bile
and yes,
in a million ways,
you have taken me down
and then in a million ways
left me on the ground
you are an intellectual bully
using your intelligence
in a way that leaves me lost
i wonder with all that brain power
you truly understand the cost
