I Can't Even Pretend Anymore
I work harder than anyone would ever imagine
I am lazier than you think
My patience is dead shot
I am frighteningly intelligent

I am disciplined

I think I am better
I’ve heard it all before
All of it
So much of it I have heard before
Enough that all of it
good or bad
doesn't register anymore

Very few deeply know me
And I could hardly care about that

I know my role

I produced the character
I will direct it

I make everything better
I nudge and adjust
Only the best courses of action
I make it all up as I go
without regard to rules
or instructions
or supervision

I built this world
Own this level
Paid my taxes

I have opinions about everything
And share them sparingly
I have no qualms
I compete to win
