Not good enough

I am not good enough
when I smile, it is not wide enough
when I frown, it is not ugly enough
when I cry, it is not real enough
when I am happy, it is not fake enough
when I look at you, it is not long enough
when I ignore you, it is not short enough
whatever I do, my enough is never enough
I am not good enough

Enough? I beg, this is too much. Reminds me of Kween Onakala's jebele song. Yes, I love that song.

Anyone in disagreement needs to do the needful i.e take the shortest route to the stinking Lagos Lagoon!

sounds like something that could be written in collaboration with Kiibati, e.g. as in point:counterpoint.
