— a poem.
How exciting it is
To curl up and watch a catastrophe on TV
Especially when it cancels work.
How delicious it is
To make a joke out of someone else’s confusion
Exchanging glances and a smirk.
How absolving it is
To scapegoat somebody to cover your transgression
Earning another social perk.
How important it is
To be the one whom everybody else thinks is cute
Except when you’re really the jerk.
