Are They Really Wise? Or Otherwise!?

They’re mainly from the Big Apple

the suburbs

the Northeast.

They walk, talk, and even gawk

sound so funny when they speak.

They look sour

like to cower (?)

are smug

oh so grub

and waddle

half awake


is it half asleep?

They constantly judge

carry a grudge





“What is their beef?”



Oh Yes!


But mainly

I do fear

for all to hear?

They are just




And even former

‘lost the thrill’


Of them


even me

do I speak!?

For the above reasons

in the ‘land of one season’

I again speak!


Just because?

No, no!

No indeed!

Just because

It’s Otherwise!

That they seem to seek!

    I know people like that, and yes, mostly from New York…or at least, some big city.
    I don’t know whether or not the person in your illustration is wise, but the glasses make him seem so.
