I Do Grow Tired Of People - Poem by Francis Duggan

One does quickly tire of people who think their ideas cannot be wrong
Those who think to the infallibles that they do or should belong
The huge weight of their ego too heavy for their soul
Of every situation they must be in control.

I do grow tired of people who think that they are great
That their opinions cannot be wrong when their point of view
they state
The opinions of others in their arrogance they dismiss
Suppose it is a fact of life that ignorance is bliss.

I do grow tired of people who let the whole World know
That they are wise and knowledgeable and disrespect only show
For the opinions of others which they dismiss offhand
Forgive me if their reasoning I do not understand.

I do grow tired of people who think that they are always right
Their souls are clouded over and not receiving any light
Their own opinions only matter and sad am I to say
That they do not grow wiser they only grow old and gray.
