Humble Bragging

Hey yo! How’s it going? (waits to hear the question back)
Me? Nothing special bro.
Just got a brand new iPhone,
Look at these sneakers,
they’re limited edition.
While I was at it, I got a car,
Went on a trip,
Blah blah blah blah

Hey friend, Did you finish studying? (waits to hear the question back)
Me? I’ll probably fail mate,
I just skimmed through all the portions,
Made only 50 questions,
Barely solved 10 old papers,
Wrote only 50 pages,
Definitely missed a question,
Have only 49/50 internals,
Blah blah blah blah

Hey colleague, how’s work?
(waits to hear the question back)
Me? I’ve always got tasks pending dude,
I just got a bonus for excellent work,
My performance review is over the top,
I just got a new client,
I was put in charge of a team,
Have just got a promotion!
And a hike to go with it,
Blah blah blah blah

Are you this person?
You might think you’re just
answering their question,
Helping them out,
Being humble not bragging.
Let me correct you,
You are not humble nor bragging,
You are humble bragging.
