arrogance and gumption.

They walk in before all

displaying their gall

destroying all grace

leaving beauty out of place, hurting feelings

contriving, depriving, cut-open and dividing

boundaries widen to try and swallow

their conniving, sniveling embrace

only to choke on their engorged pompous retrace.

Belittling, competing, their dying and pleading

to prove to us all their better-ness

that’s leaving, good people in the dust

bleeding, wounded from their bust

Aren’t you Sick of Pompous People?

Stepping on toes

Ignorance- fire from their nose

breathing poison, leeching, sucking, destroying

hanging their coats on your successes

leaving their messes- for you to clean up

attempting to whittle away

your chance at the day

confusing your mind

with their pompous design

Aren’t You Sick of Pompous People?
