to be a boss

people speak of him in a great fashion
at least, thats what he tells us
even when they see how he’s speaking to us

as soon as their notions of fashion are gone
he’s speaking for them
a great man calls himself a great man
but we’re losing the heart to agree

springs to mind
a man in a riddle, a man so great that he can’t possibly
be any good
