Your every move is cagey, I suspect;
and thus I am a trifle circumspect
in interactions co-opted by you.

It’s true. You are the barefaced bane of banes.
That I must keep my eye on you explains
my sheer distaste when I must take that view.

I see the games you play. Oh yes, I see.
And I shall counter each one warily
until your sound defeat signals we’re through.

“Tis best to weigh the enemy more mighty than he seems.”
– William Shakespeare

“When a sinister person means to be your enemy, they always start by trying to become your friend.” – William Blake

“Don’t destroy yourself by allowing negative people to add gibberish and debris to your character, reputation, and aspirations. Keep all dreams alive but discreet, so that those with unhealthy tongues won’t have any other option than to infest themselves with their own diseases.” – Michael Bassey Johnson
