I am a sensitive artist.
Nobody understands me because I am so deep.
In my work, I make allusions to books that nobody else has read,
Music that nobody else has heard,
And art that nobody else has seen.
I can't help it, because I am so much more intelligent and well-rounded
Than everyone who surrounds me.
I stopped watching tv when I was six months old
Because it was so boring and stupid,
And started reading books,
And going to recitals and art galleries.
I don't go to recitals any more,
Because my hearing is too sensitive,
And I don't go to art galleries anymore
Because there are people there,
And I can't deal with people,
Because they don't understand me.
I stay home, reading books that are beneath me,
And working on my work, which no one understands.
I am sensitive.

    General CommentThis is simply about being tired of the current scene and people who have become so wrapped up in their coolness that they can hardly function, but hey they're sensitive.

    General CommentJohn wrote this about himself, lolz. Obviously he's being quite tongue-in-cheek - I read an interview in which he said that he does actually behave like this sometimes. Luckily, he's got a good eye for the behaviour of others and himself, so he can recognise it for what it is and laugh at it (and himself in the process). A good poem.
