They Think They Know Everything

by Deborah Breuer

They say it about YOU.
They confess it about THEMSELVES.
They say it, most definitely about THOSE,

Certainly, about THEM.
THEY cause challenge,
Simply because THEY think they,
Know it all.

What right do THEY have?
To hold all the power,
Just because THEY,
Know it all.
Sparsely giving the knowledge,
And only to the correct.
How dare THEY!

THOSE only claim,
What is truly within THEM.

Those who ask QUESTIONS…
They’ve got ANSWERS.
They MIGHT really,
Know it all.
And WHO would question that?

To me your poem illustrates the objectifying ability of human beings and the dangers of the ego. Also, it reminds me of the dangers involved in thinking that I have all the correct answers. Your poem screams: "Listen!" Thanks for this gift, Deborah.
