Crucible

I’ve fallen between the lines

Portraying the idiot at times

When the mood strikes me to  

Fitting the character’s profile

By some unseeingly observer

Having age-old bones to pick                            

That’s been gnawing resolve       

A type of pit in a man’s soul    

That never becomes satisfied      

But will attempt to placate it        

The way drugs alter a mind                      

Often at the expense of others                   

And the idiot is no idiot when

He outmaneuvers…a narcissist
