“IN PRAISE OF NARCISSISM!”* a poem April 13, 2019 [Sat-Tat-Aum-urday]

OMG! A “narcissist!” def.: You’re so self-absorbed?
Shouldn’t-you-be-“put-away?” in-a-place to-be-abhorred!?

But, WAIT! Hold-on-one-moment, for-we’re-ALL self-aware:
Some more-than others! So, I-think-I-might-just-dare,
To PRAISE “The Narcissist,” that fragile, human seeker,
Seeking-a-bit-of-attention! Can’t-we-be-slightly-meeker?

And-realize: EVERYONE’S A NARCISSIST, for we-all do-crave ATTENTION,
And I don’t know who made-up that word, but-it’s-quite the-fine invention!

When a poor, poor soul, starved for LOVE, stares into “a pool,”
And admires his(her) features; well, I-wonder who’s the fool?!
Is-it The-Person gazing at-her(him)self, with-a lovely stare,
Or the person screaming at them: “I don’t really care,
That-you-seem to-like-yourself! STOP-IT!”-&-tears-are-shed,
(Usually) by-the-critical-observer, who just detests his(her) head,
Yet STILL-doth crave attention, so-a-verdict they will place,
Upon-the nar-cissis-tic-person – for-loving a-gorgeous-face! πŸ™‚ – Whoa-oa-ohm!
