Clever, But Stupid!

Poem By Barry Conway

CLEVER, BUT STUPID!

THEY ARE CLEVER BUT, STUPID TOO!
OVERALL GOOD LOOKING,
BUT WITH AN UGLY STREAK!
MOST OF THE TIME THEY ARE HAPPY,
EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A SADNESS IN THEIR EYES!

TO BE TRUTHFUL, THEY ARE HONEST,
BUT I WOULD NOT TRUST THEM!
FOR THEY ARE ATHLETICALLY LAZY,
WITH AN EVIL KINDNESS,
FROM A SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE,
THAT BELIEVES IN NOTHING!

EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE COLOURFUL,
THEY ARE INDEED DULL!
AS FREE AS A CAGED BIRD,
WITH AN ELITIST COMMONALITY,
MORE DEAD THAN ALIVE!
YOU CAN ASK THEM A QUESTION,
AND THEY WILL ALWAYS ANSWER WITH ONE!

THEY WILL DENY TO ADMIT ANYTHING,
FOR THEY ARE AFRAID TO BE BRAVE!
EACH ARE ALIKE AS THE NEXT.
ALTHOUGH THEY ARE ALL STRIKINGLY DIFFERENT!
THEY ALWAYS NEVER GET IT RIGHT!
EVEN THOUGH THEY THINK THEMSELVES AMUSING!
THEY ARE AS BORING AS BORING MUD!
FOR THEY ARE DEEPLY SHALLOW! "

PRETENDING TO BE GENTLE,
WHILE ALL THE TIME BEING VIOLENT!
SEEMINGLY CONSTRUCTING,
WHILE ALL THE TIME DESTROYING!
TRYING TO UNITE,
WHILE CAUSING DIVISION AND MISERY!
IT IS EASY TO UNDERSTAND THE DIFFICULTY,
IN RECOGNIZING WHAT IS UNKNOWN,
FOR YOU ARE ONE OF THEM, AS AM I!
