You are so ... so ... clever!

by Wendy G

Oh, you are... are you? Contest Winner 
You are wise, aren’t you, because you see …
How ordinary everyone else can be!
You are clever as your words unfold,
Telling stories that have never been told.
You are smart, aren’t you, with ready wit …
You don’t think of yourself as a silly twit!
You dress with flair, and you walk with grace, 
You know you’re not mere commonplace.
You are so thoughtful, yes, kind and sweet …
The nicest girl one will ever meet!
You even sing with awesome power,
Never make all your hearers cower.
You are the life of the party, always fun …
Mixing easily with everyone
You do everything with perfect style ...
All eyes are on you, which makes you smile!
Wait, the poem was supposed to be …
Written for fun, about plain old me!
I’m none of those things I said before ...
It was all lies – I am just an old bore!
