The Critic

The Critic

My job is to find fault

Like this beef steak I am eating which lacks a pinch salt

I can’t do, so I point out all your flaws

I feel better when a strong man stumbles and crawls

I know too well the long hours required

To achieve the goal that is so much desired

I have calculated the cost

To acquire the bragging rights to boast

It is really all about the blood, sweat and tears

For all these things feed my innermost fears

Therefore, I resort to finding fault

As the strong man’s struggles come to a deserving halt
