Beware the Slithy Troll

Dedicated to an anonymous internet troll

Don’t be a foil, beware the troll
He’ll wind you up, he’ll denigrate
And with conceit boast of his feats
ad hominems ad infinitum

And don’t react as people do
He’ll turn on God, he’ll turn on you
Had he been present at Creation
To Him some pointers would have given

A narcissist, it’s clear to me
He’ll try to get you to agree
Best pray that he might end his spite
and find some peace and find the light.
