Why is everyone so self-centered?

Yet they still care about every little thing you do.

They pounce on you when you're downtrodden and weathered

And are like the elementary kids who yell "boo"

Still they continue to cut you down

Yet they only love themselves and care about no one.

Since it gives them a feeling of control

I suppose it's in their best interest, and they have fun.

By insulting and hurting you they gain the upper hand.

They don't care who they insult

As long as they feel great and grand

It doesn't matter the result.
