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
while extolling
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
an ending;
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
villains branding;
yet thinks he should be famous, all the same.
