Skill Set -- Poetry 2011

the clock must be wrong...

well actually they all were a little off

but wasn't everyone a little off.

what was more offensive:

the abrasive overconfident jerk

or the mousy self-defeating dork?

Since she was self-defeating,

which was such an annoying aspect,

she still choose the jerk; it seemed

they never got how obnoxious they were.

being a mouse, she timidly went about

quietly doing her best to get by...

the loud mouth was usually over compensating;

figuring boisterous would make him/her right.

make enough noise and most flaws are covered

or so they think; packing up his desk, he went

on and on about the lack of skill set in the office...
