DIMINISHING IQ
(6/23/17)

the more
that I live

the less
intelligent
I become

all
of this
"deep thinking"
that I've sadly
been attempting
for so long
is

for the most
part

very obvious

very derivative

very nonproductive

so very
tiresome

for me

for everyone
else

no original
thoughts
here

only
a random rehash
of what has entered
my input ports
throughout
the years

the ramblings
of an unimaginative
mind

I'm not quite
stupid

I know enough
to maintain
my level
of social
isolation

to keep
myself
alone

to disguise
my ignorance
with solitude

a bliss
broken only
by an occasional
self realized
insight

then off
again
to the next
banality

yawn

it is all
that I know
to do
