If I were to insult their intelligence
I would surely end up with none at all.
I would probably have to watch my back all the time
If I were to showcase my superiority
I would surely have a spade in my back.
I would probably be castigated
If I were to make an enemy of the world
I would surely be alienated for life
I would probably be truthful to myself
If I were to lack the discretion (hypocrisy)
I would surely defile my own self.
I would probably not know the beauty of words
If I were to be brash in my opinion
I would surely disregard the worth of sarcasm.
I would probably never have things to hide
If I were to be such an open book
I would surely have nothing to mystify.
