On Being Dumbed Down - Poem by Ted Sheridan

It is worthless being the smartest person in the world
If nobody understands a word you say.....
And won't pay a dime to see you naked.....

    Got that one right, it's useless to have a brain, if you can't get through anothers thought process...Frustrating, like a mini war....I'd like to think that most would NOT charge one to see them naked but if that's the way it is.....you best come up with more than dimes.....perhaps diamonds? ....Short, and well put...marci.xo (Report) Reply
