MTB: I am, The First Person Narrative

I don’t consider myself a good poet, but now and then I like to throw my hat into the ring. And having discovered a new blogger today, she led me to MTB: I am, The First Person Narrative and their poetry prompt. So, here goes!

Being The Best

I’m doing my very best
To be the best
Because anything less is unacceptable.

My adoring throngs
Prop me up with
Their love and approval.

And when fake news picks at me
And are just plain being mean
They’re big, bad, lying bullies.

Why don’t they like me?
They all have to like me,
Don’t they?

If you don’t do what I want
You’re trying to undermine me
And I can’t have it.

You’ll do what I want
You’ll do what I say
Or you’re gone.

Because I’m in charge.
Because I’m the President.
And I’m doing my best.
