Smarty pant, wise guy, smart aleck
We have all known one
There is no hiding from them
We get to meet the smarties
At family get-togethers
Even in the workplace or in a social setting.

They display their self-ascribed superiority
In a wide variety of ways
Dominating conversations,
Offering unwanted advice
Argumentative in meetings
And bossing everyone around.

 They can also be condescending,
Challenging authority figures
Engage us in pointless debates.
Full of useless facts, knowledge and tidbits
Everybody knows them: People who know everything
At least, that’s what they believe

The know-it-alls are everywhere
And they know everything
I mention this to my friend
He smirks and replies
Did you know that the German word for know-it-all

Is Besserwisser, which literally means "better knower"?

On to  'K' for 'Know-it-All'.

My challenge for April is to write poetry. 
My A to Z entries can be navigated to from this page - A2Z, I will be very pleased if you managed to take some time out to read and comments on the poems.
