Legend In Your Own Mind

A bit of poetry/lyrics – with profuse apologies to Carly Simon.

Well I have known you
Since you were a local
And you always used to say
That you were gonna be somebody
You’d be our leader some day

Then you’d turn on your Blackberry
And tweet something no one understands
All the other Reps would say
That isn’t exactly what we had planned

But you’re a legend in your own mind
A hero to the halfwits
Tweeting things to fit your line
But a legend’s only a nobody
When he ends up alone

And although I know you
Still have the heart of a con man
Well, you stretch it out far too much
And every one who looks at you
Can truly tell that you’ve been really touched

Then you’d turn on your Blackberry
And tweet something no one understands
All the other Reps would say
That isn’t exactly what we had planned

But you’re a legend in your own mind
A hero to the halfwits
Tweeting things to fit your line
But a legend’s only a nobody
When he ends up alone

 

That’s it: I’ve probably offended everyone now.
