I Am Not Smart

Thursday, October 19, 2017

I am not smart. I am not smart!
The world all around me rings
in worldly din, and I sit here
surfing the ‘net and texting John.

I am not bright compared to you
or to the other folks we know;
when I was young I thought I was
the brightest light upon the string.

I felt so big and interesting
I possibly could have been king,
but now, an older fellow, sad,
I merely sit! I sit and click!!

Too lazy to change everything,
too small to make a difference,
and kind of unimpressed, in all.
As for the season, it is Fall.
