Title: The Idiot

The Idiot doesn't listen.

The Idiot doesn't tell the truth.

The Idiot doesn't understand,

and he doesn't follow suite.

The Idiot doesn't know enough.

The Idiot doesn't open up.

The Idiot the idiot can't be trusted,

and the Idiot doesn't love.

The Idiot over-analyses.

The Idiot doesn't know the 'score'.

The Idiot just wants something,

but the Idiot can't have any more.

The Idiot can't be happy.

The Idiot will always loose.

The Idiot doesn't care any more,

but he's too scared to tie the noose.

The Idiot will always be caged.

The Idiot will never be free.

The Idiot isn't in all of us,

but the Idiot is in me!
