Self Taught

Living alone I talk to myself a lot
... The problem is... I don't listen

It's when I answer myself that's bad
...My other self often likes to argue

Smart persons say self talk teaches
...Smarter - I know better than that

Discussion gets too much one sided
... "He" refuses to permit decisions

We argue too much losing tempers
... Outsmarting him I just shut up

I must admit though he's brainy
...And at times I like telling him so
