what my enemies taught me

what my enemies taught me

I was arrogant headstrong

weak cowardly stupid

highbrow intellectual poseur

bookish self-absorbed plotting

uncaring disregarding feelings

overwhelming passionate

did not think before I spoke

had hidden latent motives

cold calculating psychopath

misogynist sadist masochist

flaneur voyeur idler idiot

thought too highly of me

not enough of others

a mr know it all if innefective

ignorant ignoramus ingrate

but what my enemies

really taught me

was

all about themselves

that I had enemies

so must at some point

have stood up enough

to be counted

for something

that they could not be
