The Snob

His eyes just glare as he stands in line,
'Cause lunch crowds just aren't worth his time.
You glance his way, he squints at you:
Don't you realize he's got cooler things to do?
His vulture-gaze preys on self-worth;
He's been above this crowd since birth.
His voiceless clothes accentuate his face, that face, that poker face
That rolls those brown eyes as he struts from the line,
'Cause none of us are worth his time.

I really liked the rhyme scheme and liked the idea behind it. Don't we all know a snob like that...

this was good, although the fifth line seems out of place with the rhythm. but i love the idea of it, and i felt that way too when i was in public school

The rhyming was very good and had a nice beat to it (if that makes any sense). Good job !!! Keep Writing!!!! :D

I loved the last sentence! It was a very powerful ending!

You're welcome. And if you'd like, you can read my song "Desperate Measures." I never really know if anything of mine is any good, so constructive critisism is welcome :)
