THE SNEERING GOBLIN

Mr Buffy Devane

'SPOTTING THE SNIDES'


Sniggers, smirks and sneers.
The snide ones, they're all around. 
They stare, mockingly. 

They laugh at your dreams, 
Taunt all of your hopes and plans,
Snort at your efforts.

If you let them in
If the snide's your co-pilot?
Your plane, it will crash.

Thing is: they who sneer? 
They've a fragile sense of self: 
Their pain throbs deeply.

The joy and beauty
Of your building and trying
Is their grim poison. 

Made foul by self-hate
They want to give you their pain. 
They're rancid goblins.

You cannot help them
So take away their power
By ignoring them.

So, to summarise
With quick and simple advice: 
I just say: Fuck 'em.
