Jack and the Skyscraper

you’re an expert at everything
amazing at every job since 17
you can pick up anything
just like it’s a penny
off the sidewalk

but there is a thing that
you are no good at
and it’s knowing you’re being used
and manipulated
i know because you never saw
what i was doing to you

but bring it back around
and you’ll see i’m an expert too
at thinking i know everything
and assuming things about people
a skill more trouble
than it’s worth

In response to Expert.
