Notable Exception

He’s a notable exception

The one who proves the rule

Brighter than the rest of us

He didn’t suffer fools.


Extraordinary, gifted,

He really made his mark.

He’d not so much communicate

As issue orders, bark.


A notable exception

His brain set him apart

But he alienated all of us

Which wasn’t quite so smart.


Notable, exceptional

But really in the end

The thing that really marked him out;

His total lack of friends.
