If I had to define the term sycophant
I’d use you as my example.
You blindly follow him,
You embrace all of his lies.
You excuse his insanity
And believe he’s got you covered,
While he’s lurking in the shadows,
A honed blade in his hand
Prepared to stab you in your back.
No, I’m not being satirical.
You’re like an ostrich with your head in the sand
Or a turtle who retracts your head into your shell
When faced with facts that conflict with your opinion.
Why can’t you see him for what he is?
A crook, a criminal, a conman, a phony.
I need a break from you.
I need to get stoned.
Because I’m just mad about Saffron
Saffron’s mad about me.
They call me mellow yellow
