Chit chat.

Back stabs.

Rolled eyes.

And wide smiles.

Compliments mingle with bile

and those they're directed to are clueless.

I don't trust cause it's silly.

Why waste my time on those willing

to say the worst of me?

So many faces to choose from, but which one is real?

If I ask, they'll tell me something that sounds honest,

but I can't be sure

cause when I turn I hear other words.

Petty is a common term because petty is what people learn.

You either know petty, are petty, or will be petty.

It's just a game.

Just a big game of false.

So play along

and let's see how far this goes on.
