One Tin Soldier

Follow The Leader

Followers of The Dark

The Narcissist’s

favorite game

of all

is conveniently


"Follow the Leader“;

And, he will always

win every game

he plays


he is an immorally,



If you desire

to play

his games,

you must follow

each and every



But remember,

the Narcissist

will insidiously

change these rules,

without pre-warning,

or any sort of

(even tiniest) clue!

Wait... listen up!

If you remain loyal

and obedient

to the Narcissist,

in playing every one

of his unfair,

childish games,

You will be promoted

to bigger

and better things,

like being a

Flying Monkey

in one of his major

Smear Campaigns!

Followers of The Dark


This is really

quite a calling,

to be a personal-


to such a perfectly,


Narcissist Chief;

But, be pre-warned

that your


with him

will always be


and radically brief!

See, your dear


will soon choose

brand new targets

to play with him

when he gets

a bit too snot-faced bored;

Then, you will get

to be the one

booted out,

and cruelly ostracized,

by his new,


Empath” hoard.

Narcissists will never “play” fairly with others; they do not follow any natural rules, or laws, unless it is of benefit to them. In fact, the only rule that really does apply to Narcissists is that “they are above any, and all, rules”. And most of the time, the Narcissists’ victims never realize that they are even in a game with the Narcissist, unless they are the Narcissists’ devoted Enablers.

Thanks, Hari, for your kind words. I want people to know they are not alone, and also to help people see the Red Flags of these sort of personalities/predators.

I thank Jesus that I am able to share my words.


Hari Prasad S from Bangalore on September 09, 2019:

You are creating so much awareness about this much hidden aspect of human psychology. Kudos.

Tamara Yancosky (author) from Uninhabited Regions on February 22, 2018:


Thank you so much for your comment. Yes, I have had more than one encounter with these kind.

Unfortunately, some people are natural targets for Narcissists. I am learning how not to be prey, anymore :-)



Mark Tulin from Ventura, California on February 21, 2018:

You definitely got the narcissistic personality right. You must have had an unfortunate encounter. Love the poem.

DREAM ON on December 29, 2017:

You cover a subject I am not familiar with. Your words so powerful and precisive. I am glad you made me aware of some of the mean people in the world. Your poetry is expressive and bold. You are so talented. Thank you for sharing what I don't understand.

Thank you, Ryan! I appreciate your lovely visit :-)

Interesting. Informative information

Tamara Yancosky (author) from Uninhabited Regions on November 29, 2017:

Truthfully, before people judge a person by what another person, and their Flying Monkeys (followers) say, they should go to the source- the person who is being talked against- and get his/her full version of the facts surrounding the accusations, first.

This would seem only the right, and fair thing to do, instead of automatically jumping to the accuser’s side. But unfortunately, I have witnessed the human condition being so that people love to automatically judge and hate others, without even bothering to check the surrounding happenings on both sides.

But, God knows the truth. And one day, the truth will be laid bare. And no matter how many people believe a lie, it doesn’t cease to be a lie.

Tamara Yancosky (author) from Uninhabited Regions on November 26, 2017:

Awwe, thank you :-) Yes, I have experienced these kind and it’s deeply disturbing.

I actually have a blog on another site with many NPD poems I have written.

Thank you!

Hi, Tamara. Wisely said, and a warning to all. Love the style. Oh, and I enjoyed the pictures, too!

Tamara Yancosky (author) from Uninhabited Regions on November 24, 2017:

A very wise comment, Flourish; thank you :-)


FlourishAnyway from USA on November 24, 2017:

Where there are narcissists there are often enablers. Often they have no idea that’s what they’re doing.

Tamara Yancosky (author) from Uninhabited Regions on November 24, 2017:

Thank you so much, Dora :-) I like to help others not get ensnared!


Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on November 24, 2017:
