Some might call it my pomposity, but I find it a monstrosity
to have to sit with common dullwits on a bus.
It’s like being in a pit with creatures mired in s—t,
or like working every day at Scum ‘R’ Us.
The grosser wits think beer is Eldorado,
but I get high on Proust & Leonardo.
My mind is so refined, all my acts are underlined
by a powerful sense that I’m a brainy nerd.
But I hope some day that I’ll reach ataraxy:
either that or have the money for a taxi.
