Imitation Is Infuriating
Can’t stand it when she tells my jokes
To grab the spotlight, wow more folks.
She’ll parrot lines
To show she shines
And earn their favor. Holy smokes.
Come up with your own tales, I muse.
Don’t steal my stuff, so you can schmooze.
You may be loud,
But are you proud
To pirate humor to amuse?
