Spoils And Snobs - Poem by s./j. goldner

i'm not a snob
—so you can never accuse me of that;
i'm a spoil.

and the difference is

the spoils take their spoiledness
out on themselves,
while the snobs take their snobbery out on others.

    One who tends to patronize, rebuff, or ignore people regarded as social inferiors and imitate, admire, or seek association with people regarded as social superiors.

    Shit, we're all snobs. Who'd a thunk it?

    So sorry to disagree with you, but the spoils are just as bratty as the snobs, because they are both perfect at temper tantrums if they don't get their own way! I am not too fond of either... (Report) Reply
