I’ll Sit here and Be

 

I’ll sit here and be stupid

let all stuffing drop out of my head

all learning, cleverness, deceit

I shall stand here naked before you and afraid

I fear fear fear

I admit this, I am rarely brave

I must admit this because I am stupid

as surely as one who stands naked before you

and don’t know that is illegal in public!!

but I read about cleverness and hear cleverness all day

and that makes me despise cleverness

and I want to be as stupid as a fly

which I am

I don’t know how to earn a living

too tired to hustle

to unbelievable to preach

to fool the world and make money

i don’t know how to network or keep up

with people.

and you will fail in every way like that

So I stand before you stupid and naked

and with fear

but wait, no one is watching me though

they are on their phone.

so I can stupid without consequence

ya see

and I kinda like that or maybe

I  don’t so much

but I’m stupid and have no memory

please forgive me

say your name, and I just might forget it

quickly.  I do not know what do with myself

I walk the path of a forgotten sun

yet stand here naked and a fool for you
