cocktail party syndrome

wants to twist words

but doesn’t want to fight

oh no

that would be too honest

he’s much happier

sitting on the sidelines

casting a snide here & there

waiting for an opening

get in his twists

show how much cleverer he is

than the stupid protagonists

throwing their own thoughts up

& one will stumble

fall over a word or line

& he’ll want to jump in

riffing on what’s gone before

nothing new original his own

cocktail party syndrome

& we

protagonists will wait for you

to catch on to the clown

but you rarely
