  1. a question:

    I have the answer to the question…
    yet you forgot to mention….
    what the question was…..
    I just know the answer cuz….
    i know everything…
    please ask me anything…….
    i’ll always have an answer –
    and if you always have a question
    i can see the start of a newfound friendship
    and youll be full of falsified information 😉

    moral of the story: seek books for knowledge when youre in college…..
    HA HA – just being a smarty pants.

  2. I like how the speaker seems both proud of their knowledge but also sad. They’re not entirely happy with the situation. I like the way the last two lines go together yet also create a tension.
