You Must Be Kidding



You say you are unique. You say you are right.
You must be kidding since you seem so trite.

You say you are candid. You say you are frank.
You must be kidding since you seem so rank.

You say you are passive. You say you are cool.
You must be kidding since you seem so cruel.

You say you are astute. You say you are kind.
You must be kidding since you seem so blind.

You say you are cordial. You say you are nice.
You must be kidding since you seem so vice.

You say you are happy. You say you are glad.
You must be kidding since you seem so mad.

You say you are giving. You say you are deep.
You must be kidding since you seem so cheap.
