Meeting With The Narcissist - Poem by Armistead Lindsey

Take a seat.
You look nervous,
Edgy,
That's okay,
I'll smile,
Put things at ease.
I see you're responsive,
Perhaps emotionally adept,
Or maybe disadvantaged.
You sit with your left leg,
Comfortably over your right.
Now you'll find it hard
To lie to me.

You have a job,
That's great,
I'll pay today,
You're obligated to pay tomorrow.
Also it means
You won't be needy
9-5 weekdays-
Ample personal space.
Gives me breathing room,
And a reason for you
To realize,
How much,
You miss me.

You're educated,
Perfect.
You'll be useful for:
Dinner conversation,
Formal dos and functions.
I can leave you to it.
I can socialize,
You can distract.

You're attractive,
It could work.
You attract more people,
I network more,
It could be effective.

You drive.
Excellent.
I won't need to walk,
Or pay for a bus.
A taxi sits before me,
Payment of socialization,
Pricey, but easy.

You're complimentary,
My ego likes you,
You can reinforce
All my positives.
I won't need to
Open my own mouth.

Yes, you're useful.
'Can I get you a drink? '
