Proverbs 26:4-5

mooncalf they’d call me

because I was indeed a fuckwit

never mind a fool and his money being

soon parted

I was born always to be the right Charlie

acting the giddy goat

dumb as a box of rocks

crazy as a loon

howling at the moon

speaking only

because I felt I had to say something

in rooms full of wise men

offering nothing but sage advice

which I could never take

not being the sharp enough tool in the box

simpletons being like that a sandwich short

for the picnic just big bonehead chumps

shmucks never understanding dipstick rules

& if I held on to anything

it was that I was just a slow learner

hoping against hope

to one day get smarter

pass as one of you
