"Stuck-Up"

Many of them
don't know
when they're fooling
themselves
thinking they're more
than they are
so full of it
staring in the mirror

imagining people wanting
to be like them
strutting on the street
along the beach
taking a bow
on the stage of vanity

do they realize
the monster inside
the blind ego
ass in the air
smelling like they're
too good to wipe

what a fall is coming
in broad daylight
in front of everyone
a nightmare
they cannot awake from.
