Good listeners are selfish. Probably The most selfish people You will ever meet. All they do Is sit back, Absorbing everyone’s stories, Experiences and insights Whilst, in exchange Giving back none of their own. It is only sensible to assume they do this Because they have none of their own.
They are leeches. Parasites. And You can never resent them. All you can do is look up to them Or worse, Become a pale imitation of them For fear of one of them stealing your girlfriend Whom you can bet is with one right now Filling in the voids of his silence With all her ideals.
They are the bloated sponges of our admiration And they have become so Without lifting a finger.
A truly humble person Talks about themselves all the time. They dish out perspective As freely And as inexhaustible As a drinking fountain. Even if what they say is inane, bland or offensive They have still given you A reason to feel better about yourself And something To ***** about When they are gone.
I ask you now to please spare a thought For the narcissistic *******. He has lifted a countless number of awkward souls From the depths of an awkward silence, He has saved you from any obligation To be intelligent or interesting And he has turned the art Of wooing the woman you love Into the simple act Of never speaking.
So, Once again Spare a thought for the narcissistic *******. He gives you everything And in return Gets nothing.
