That’s Not Attractive, Is It? [Advice Not Condescension]

‘Neutralization’ without Attack
… that’s POWER!!!
‘Durability’ or ‘Indifference’
… keep ‘em fools guessing.
‘Craft’ whilst they’re getting
Pummelled by your… Silence.
‘Shine’ is the only ‘Answer’
you’ll be giving any squabbler.
“You couldn’t pry your
fucking ‘Name’ outta your
Copycat’s slanderous mouth
with a crowbar, Pauly… and,
everyone’s watching the Idiot.”
As you Excel… out come
the ‘Knives’, the ‘Weak’,
the [Piss-Poor] ‘Half-Talents’
and the ‘Trolls’ and ‘Haters’
… you’re right on track
as soon as the ‘Scum’ appear.
Instead of wasting time
arguing with the ‘Runners-Up’
and ‘Losers’ having hissy-fits
over being born ‘Inadequate’…
skyscraper your ‘Talent’ higher.
