Freud And The Party-Smartys


Not too long ago at many social parties
Frequented by faux intellectual smartys
It was thought quite fashionable
Spouting things faux rationale

Much too often came ‘sophisticate’ quips
That most things said were “Freudian Slips”
Sigmund Freud’s theories were not meant to be
Overly used thrown-abouts for partying glee

But somehow or other every damn fool
Became amateur analysts, acting so cool
Whatever was stated, they knew what was meant
They knew it was Freudian with a down deep intent

Freud gave us our “Ids” and our wonderful “Egos”
Along with our super-craving “Libidos”
The façade we showed on our conscious level
Camouflaged the sub-conscious lurks of a devil

Freud was the father of the psychology science
Which has since learned to place much less reliance
On the value of those once fashionable quips
Known to the party-smartys as “Freudian Slips”
