You're Smart by Bob Atkinson

You're Smart
(c)2012 Bob Atkinson

-->
who told you that "you are smart?"
was it your PO or your lawyer?
who told you that you are smart?
your sister or your brother?

was it the fellow at the gas station
when you aired your bicycle tires?
was it the fellow at the donut shop
when you scrubbed the restroom tiles?

who told you that you are smart?
the man on your TV set
or the one in your ear
on your iPod, model best?

who told you that you are smart?
did you get his name and number
or was it some jellyfish
who tried to sell you something

you spent an hour describing
your huge intellect to me
then you had to leave
more restrooms to clean

later, when you wise up
back to school you'll go
to find those that have the brains
think of themselves as slow
