Munday on Monday: The smartest one in the room

Updated: 2013-12-02T05:33:00Z

The smartest one in the room

This type you know — so self-assured,

Enjoying nature’s gifts conferred —

Who of themselves they quite assume

The smartest one in all the room.

They smirk and in their self-conceit

They deign us lesser folks to greet.

We may be oafs and dullards, dense,

With scarcely intellect or sense

But odd — if you’re the one so smart,

With IQ cresting off the chart,

Then why have you not noticed, too —

In silence, we all laugh at you?
