It’s easy to expose a fake.
Do something better than they can,
and watch them fall apart.
Watch their demeanour change right before your eyes.
They go from being ever the socialite,
to a wretched and decaying cesspool of hatred.
They’ll listen to you, read your work,
with evil intent,
and ever so randomly, pretend like you don’t exist,
eat from a plate and spit back in it.
No one, wears the cloak of ingratitude,
as graciously as they do.
What is dumbfounding, is how they can hate you for something that is not theirs anyway. Were it theirs, and you stole it, one could understand the ill feelings,
but it’s yours, and still, they could burn holes in you.
