Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Know-All!
 
People who consider they're superior,
who march rough-shod as through the world they go,
think everybody else so far below;
they have not met me yet so lack the knowledge.
Know this and weep...your gift is but inferior,
everything you know, I taught at college!

Are common folk equipped with such a brain?
A shame indeed, when intellect's bonsai,
great pity that...this world could be so smart;
annoyance irks, like a sticky, small house-fly!
To coin a phrase, no better could there be,
those clever few endowed to reach the sky.
Of course, I, myself, are of that ilk,
us better breed who put to shame small fry.
Who knows what's worth knowing if not I?
Do not despair, (signed) The original wise guy.
