Play dumb notice the dumb

Topic: Lifepoems

play dumb notice the dumb

are people stupid
or is it lie
when they talk to you
can they look in your eye
when you play dumb
the dumb come to you
they connive they lie they enjoy to construe

so i play dumb and i watch theyre pathetic game
all i can do is look and think shame
is that what your lifes come to
just to lie and to cheat
or are you really that sad
its the only way you can compete
to do unto others, what should they expect you to do
play dumb notice the dumb, theyll soon come to you

your mischief, your ways
ive seen it all before
ive wrote it in poetry which lays trodden on the floor
its where you belong down there in the gutter
you lie you cheat, like its your bread and butter
well butter me this when i look at your games
your bring nothing to yourself but unadulted shame
your to dumb to notice, that others notice you
you lie you cheat you connive and construe

i listen and listen to what you say
if i believed you ,then you would lead me astray
but you carry on digging to get a reaction
i wont give you that satisfaction
play dumb notice the dumb is what i say
i see people like you each and every day

the best thing about it
is i know i what you do
your a liar , that cheats and trys to construe
the problem is when people like me catch you
well ill just keep quiet and i will stay true
play dumb notice the dumb it will come back on you

looking back i laugh, you/'/ve been lying longer than the neck of a giraffe
is nothing more that i can say or do
you/'/ve done to much for me to ever trust you
play dumb notice the dumb for if only i cared
but instead ill just listen and no longer be there
you messed it up and now people understand
play dumb notice the dumb when they/'/re close at hand

I think we are sure of one thing
whatever it is was we left it the way it
was, tangled up in blue,
Bob Dylan

But you are touching upon something
everybody knows is truer than knowing
what it is like

they say we are all caught up in this golden
triangle of playing like we/'/re all dumb

between the sense of developing oneself
and the hope to shape what is to become

It/'/s not easy to be honest, it never was.
I think you know this.
I think a lot of people do.
And I agree with your words,
And you came here naked to write
down a poem --- it/'/s not dark yet,
but it/'/s getting there.

We all know it when we encounter the truth.
And it/'/s hard to write, almost like you might
think that if you take a long time thinking too hard
you just might misread the signs,
And surely, surely, you might be losing
some of your religion.
And you become selectively alone.
with no compromise
most of the time
