Keep themselves to themselves

Scaredy-cats do not blink

They sleep with eyes open

Is this cowardice or strength?

For scaredy-cats have been there

They majored in Arts

Specialized in deceit and deception

They went on to grad-school and graduated with Master’s of Arts: Comparative Studies in Society and History and later pursued Ph.D. in Philosophy

They are the Ph.Ds in the Art of loneliness, a pride and honor they keep to themself
