Moderna Malady

Today’s Malady
Narcissism they say
is the malady today

suffer many personae
you could be one inn your own field to
I was only an egoist sufferer of an Ego- Cancer

narcissism is worse today
specialists say
then what do such guys display

do hear silently
don't them betray

they need sympathy why

it is a mental condition
where in guys /gals have an inflated
opinion of their own importance
a deep need for excessive
attention and admiration;
they suffer from troubled family
inner family relations
and so also lack
sympathy/empathy for others
now say medical psycho doctors

do they really mean it so
go visit them and ask
it may help you also

take care
if you are a candidate
with a doctor do update
ere it is too late

all the best
but do make haste

Style / type:
