If I Were You

If I Were You

A Poem by casablancavic

If I Were You


If I were you, I would run and hide
Nobody wants you here, so just step to the side
It will be easy if you go and do it now
If you aren't sure what to do, let me show you how

If I were you, i would pack my bags today
You had your chance - you blew it big - now you're just in the way
You got lots of attention, you made a real big splash
But everybody knows - you're just a real big a*s

There's nothing you can do and there's nothing you can say
That doesn't make you look bad on any given day
Smile all you want and try to tell your lies
But you are just a fool in everybody's eyes

If I were you, I would take a few steps back
It's charm and understanding and personality you lack
You're not the only one, but you are in first place
So go and claim your trophy now - for winning in that race

You smile and wave your hands, but you don't have a clue
Take my advice and walk away - it will be better off for you
You're not very popular and you're not making any friends
So do the right thing now - and put this to an end

If I were you, I would not say another word
Every-time you move your lips, you look just like a t**d
Are you from another planet? Are you from outer space?
You're an embarrassment to me and the rest of the human race

It doesn't matter what you wear, or what you tell the crowds
You proved exactly who you were - you can't undo it now
You still have one last chance - but that will end quite soon
Just grab your keys, step back in your ship and go back to the moon

Be thankful for your stature - and that you had a chance
it's time for you to leave the room and let somebody else have the dance

Ah, if he would only listen to you! But he won't; to you or anyone else.

That was excellent! I think you said a lot of things most don't have the nerve to. I agree with everything you wrote. Nicely written.
