"I am a misanthrope and yet utterly benevolent, have more than one screw loose yet am a super-idealist who digests philosophy more efficiently than food."
~ Alfred Nobel
Like many other manners unbecoming to the mass
Misanthropy is misunderstood as a half glass.
It isn't necessarily driven by fundamental hate
But rather by aversion to what most people imitate.
Fitting in isn't important to curmudgeons, antisocial.
Lambs may play it safe; rams break barriers so crucial.
While everybody else will take the given at face value
Their eyes shall analyze until they find facts to be true.
Nothing novel was ever wrought with complacent hands.
Nowhere new gets explored if you're content in your lands.
Real artists must detach from what the crowd thinks it knows.
Pioneers feel thrust out; dispatched despite any negative noes!
