"Pay attention to how good we're being...while you're
here in front of us, at least!"
It's still gossip, even if you pretend you don't spread it.
It's still lying, even if you keep covering it up with new lies..
and haven't been caught yet....
and have everybody convinced.
It's still coercion, even if you keep a smile on your face.
It's still judgement, even if you smirk it softly,
or couch it with "I'm just trying to help."
It's still a clique, even if you really believe you're superior.
It's still delusion, even if you fancy yourself special and right.
