People Think I Am Stupid – Written September 2010 (Aged 35)

People Think I Am Stupid

people think i am stupid
i guess it is a convincing act
i convinced the entire education system
and even my dad
the dad who opted out –
when i asked him to opt in
people think i am just a joke
they take me as firewood
and set me to smoke
and they say, just be an average, ‘bloke’
but i am too often,
a tear stained beer drained –
heart of a tart kind of man
people think i am stupid
but i know you would understand




James Garratt – September 2010
