Attention, it gets you. You light up the room. Now they're beginning to swoon. You're so well-versed and rehearsed, so well groomed. You're always right on cue. Can't fake it the stakes are too high. How long does it take to make up a mind? Grand delusions, abusing your turn. I'm still pasting up signs. I ain't cut out for your kind. Garish, don't care-ish. The loudmouths, the lame. It takes one to know one, they say. Run up ahead. Catch the pack leading the way. I'll stay back and stroll with the strays. CUT AND PASTE IT the stakes are too high How long does it take to make up a mind? Sketching conclusions, losing the nerve. I thank you all you've been kind. I just ain't cut out for these times.
