They Call People Like That Comedians - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are those with insecurities,
Who believe them to be less noticeable...
If they are quick to point out the flaws,
And blemishes of others in public.
And with loud disrespecting remarks.
To ensure an attention to them is given.
In the hopes that someone will find them humorous.
Although at the expense of degrading another.

'They call people like that,
Legitimate comedians.'

People like that who do what they do,
And not get paid...
Offstage too?
Are people who can not perceive to believe,
Those who hear and see what they do to others...
Do not think of them as humorous.
As much as they witness publicly,
Someone proving with a doing to be a legitimate fool.

    It is so common that those with insecurities about whatever flaws they may have, often have flawed ways of coping. A truthful write, greatly executed. (Report) Reply

    I used to be a victim of these people so much that I thought of being one of them but then I thought, this isn't me. Thanks for writing this and posting it for people to read, thumbs up to you. (Report) Reply
