More lessons learned from nursing a older woman who thought she was surrounded by idiots.
I am surrounded by idiots do you hear?
I am surrounded by idiots both near and far.
I am all but dismayed by the idiots all around me.
I am altogether one of the brightest people around.
Why won't people listen to me?
Why won't people adore me?
Or just go away really I don't care sometimes which.
I was at the top of my class.
I was by far the brightest woman in my college.
I was beloved by my parents.
Now they have gone and left me here alone.
I have no need of God for what has he done for me really.
What has God even done for me here lately?
My parents were the only ones that loved me the best.
To heck with all the rest who think they love me.
Well as I can remember my parents weren't all that bright.
They were however smarter than most, well my dad anyway.
Surely however they were not brighter than I.
But they did love me and make my days brighter.
Now that they are gone my days are dim.
The rest of the world, well see they're idiots.
Are you listening to me, my dear stupid aide?
Who me listening to you why of course I am you genius you.
No not really I am not.
Thinking hard I am inside my head and trying hard to block you out.
Can we go for a walk?
Just smile and offer to go for a walk with her.
Thinking I'll walk you off a cliff, you old witch.
Okay, she said no to the walk.
Is it time to go home yet, is it 3 pm yet?
I tried to get along with her and to agree with her on some level.
No dice didn't work.
I tried to talk about my small education and the things I've learned.
No dice didn't work.
Is it 3:00 yet?
I tried to impress her with the way I worked.
No dice it didn't work.
I want to go home yes I do because you have made this day impossible.
Please folks learn from this poor old woman don't be too smart.
Don't think you're surrounded by idiots.
Don't think no one is as bright as you are.
Being a smart- alec will leave you all alone sooner or later.
When you choose to say I am surrounded by idiots that hurts.
Even if you're saying it in a roundabout way most people get it because we're not all idiots!
