“NARCISSISM DEFINED – AND – UNCHAINED?” a poem in the series: “Narcissism and Other Apparently Extraordinary Conditions!” Friday: 9 Nov 2018

[Excessive-and-Erotic – INTEREST IN ME!

What I look like – and how I pee!

I AM SO SELFISH? I watch the mirror,

With extreme interest! Shall-I-wash-it-clearer?

I AM absorbed – into my eyes!

I’m-GRANDiose -and-won’t-apologize!

I will-NOT sit-(pause) upon NO-one’s “fence,”

To-wait-for-admirers! That’ll-make-me-tense!

I crave admiration! And-my-person-al-ity,

SHOULD-top The DSM!* I’ll make history!

I’m quite self-centered, AND THE WORLD REVOLVES,

JUST AROUND ME! And – when everyone EVOLVES,

They’ll look – and act, just like ME!

IN-ME-God-fashioned – a-new-pedigree!]

THE THING IS: BEING-AWARE OF-THIS-“MALADY,”

IS THE EMBODIMENT OF IT! ASK YOUR BA-BABY!

And THEN – baby’s TAUGHT – to NOT be self-centered!

To hide (OUR) narcissism – in THAT we’re mentored,

By CLASSICAL NARCISSISTIC TYPES,

Who offer us – some Handy Wipes,

To-forget-our-“anal-fascinations,”

And TEACH-US-TO-MAKE-CLEVER observation,

About THOSE PEOPLE – who are just TOO proud,

Or – like to gather a too-big-crowd,

Around-them! LIKE: Errant-carpenters-and-fisher-men,

Who heal the sick – let’s say: “Amen!”

THING IS: WE’RE “CLASSICALLY” and “NARCISSISTICALLY” inclined,

And we LOVE to trick – and train our mind,

TO THINK WE AREN’T! and – gather folks,

Who laugh at (OUR) narcissistic jokes!

So! KEEP ON JUDGING, JUST LIKE ME,

We’re-ALL-part – (pause)

Of-the-NARCISSISTIC –

SYMPHONY! 🙂 – Yup!
