Fool

With a fool’s tongue

I sharpen my words.

Lying in wait

To emphasize wit.

 

A dispenser of knowledge.

Clever lines with banter.

An emerald gleam in diamond eyes.

Talent frittered away for greed.

 
Cunning smiles seduce innocence-

Temptation for flawless beauty.

But perfection is not daring,

Not bold, but boring.

 
This is not intelligence.

It’s a popularity contest.

The prize awarded to only

Those with clear social acceptability.

 
I don’t want to play this part:

The lead in this cast of cruelty.

Assign a new role

Or let me go home.
