Marine engineer and drifter now retired to my home in NE Thailand with my wife, family and a mongrel dog.

This work has reached the exceptional level
Humorous soul searching.
"This Other Guy" by PeterRHW

I'm a very nice guy
Polite with a smile,
Donate to charity
Once in a while.
I never get angry,
I'm honest and good,
And if you met me
You'd like me you would.

Then there's this other guy;
Lazy and weak,
Bad tempered and mean
With a selfish streak.
Doesn't answer the phone
When you try to call,
Often turns up late,
I don't like him at all.

Two ends of the spectrum
Me and this guy,
Yet I know him so well
And you're wondering why.
Well, if I'm honest,
I'm beginning to see,
This other fellow,
Is also ME!

Writing Prompt
Write a poem about a flaw that you see in yourself.
I Am Not Perfect
Contest Winner

Author Notes
A little doggerel fun with the dog appreciatively borrowed from P W Ryan.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
