have you ever wondered
what it would be like
to be the world’s greatest
living human being
who ever lived?
the ultimate in being human?
the pinnacle of humanity,
and all that it means
to be human?
i never had to wonder,
never had to ask such questions.
i just knew.
i mean,
of course i did.
how could i not?
and now,
you want me to reveal
that secret,
that knowledge?
why would i?
and besides,
how could you possibly
even begin to hope to understand
what it is to be
the world’s greatest
living human being
who ever lived?
of course
you can’t,
so of course
you don’t need to know.
you don’t need to be
the world’s greatest
living human being
who ever lived.
you be you.
it may not be me,
but it’s good enough.
for you.
