The exaggeration's killing me.
I can't believe my eyes.
She acts as though it's some huge deal,
When really she's just fine.

She tricks them,
She taunts them,
They're right in her hand.
They believe every word she says,
They're her biggest fan.

Frowning on the outside,
Smiling within.
She plays her character oh so well.
I could never win.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem when I was mad at my sister, and my parents for believing her.
