A Legend In His Own Mind
Poem By moon batchelder
he's smug, opinionated and controlling
manipulative, self-absorbed and vain.
a know-it-all know-nothing
virtues never once he has attained.
he's full of pompous airs and condescending.
there's little he regards withouth disdain.
as boring as a joke without
yet imagines he is witty and urbane.
he's a legend in his own mind, notwithstanding
the fact that no one's ever heard his name.
no feats of derring do, or
yet thinks he should be famous, all the same.
