Chickenshit Endeavours

~ when you can’t see past the hatred… chasing your own tail ~

I neither ‘Trust’ nor ‘Respect’
anyone’s Opinion…
who [openly] Suffers from
‘The Dunning-Kruger Effect’.
‘Plagiarists’ are ALWAYS
Found-Out in Time…
and, when they’ve Mocked
and Undermined the Artist
whom they’ve been ‘Aping’
there is only one Outcome…
Narcissists do not do well
Subjected to ‘Public Scrutiny’.
Keep claiming small [in the
scale of things] insignificant,
childish ‘Pyrrhic Victories’…
while adding more Substantial
‘Height’ to those GALLOWS
you’ve been [a long time]
Building… the Universe,
in all her Wisdom… is Patient.

* sabotaging other people’s work and smear campaigns are the domain of clout-chasing, (morbidly) envious losers who have been, and continue to be, naturally ‘Outshined!’… parasites cursed with no talent and Cluster B delusions of grandeur… born inadequate. Scum.
