Popular is a word well overused
along with overrated.
With an evil smile you sit and act
like everyone knows you
and you can't be beat.
No offense, but ten years and a better description would be DEAD BEAT.
As you engorge yourself with clever words and vapid jokes.
And a coud inside me stands still; but an twisted, cynical grimace floats through my mind, lingering like a sticky cold sweat on a feverish child sleeping restlessly.

Yes, let's throw a ball around and bang our heads together.
Whoever can do that is surely better.
The cream of the crop
if you can throw a ball and not drop
it. You're funny, they call you "hot."
Sure, I'm sure that'll get you far. I'm sure that'll work.
Okay, just shut up now.
Jerk.

Well, there you go, ten years of torment in a poem. Written in of course, algebra. You don't have to like it. Let's see if it gets POPULAR...

Niceeee.

I love it. And I absolutely agree.

I dislike people who possess such a hypocritical lifestyle and ways.

Keep writing.

You have great talent.
