Begging for Attention Syndrome: A Poem
We have all seen a toddler making a big noise
so it's not exactly a motorcyclist's invention
as they rev insanely on their manly toy
begging those around for attention.
So, I dwell at this busy, often noisy intersection
sleeping through police sirens and other noise
but awaken at display of brain imperfection
under a helmet of attention begging boy.
Just like that insecure machismo of some superpowers
that's often begging for attention with their noisy nukes
not taken seriously so making others feel like cowards
parading around with military like some scary spooks.
Those iron pumping freaks are good enough to mention
many soft on inside and compensating with strength
once with beggar's hat filled up with attention
they may go fat shortening life's length.
By not giving ourselves all the love that we deserve
we often do impossible for some of others' attention
whether by impressing or getting on their nerve
it usually turns into a cheap compensation.
