They Are Not Very Bright – Written Thursday 17th September 2008 (Aged 33)

They Are Not Very Bright

they are not very bright
but insist,
on clinging to the light
and although –
opinion behaves as if –
it is thoroughly pissed
they say they are right
and it is others –
who are not very bright
and they insist,
that no one else is ever missed
that the air they exhale
is always the most crisp
but, they are the ones –
who always fail
for whom sanity has a fatal rip
who fruit,
remains sour with pips
they are not very bright
through a choice –
not to explore themselves
or attempt to listen to others
they insist,
on always being right
the truth is –
they are just not very bright
