First, make yourself strange
Burn with intensity to make the bravest and most arrogant
Question their safety in unguarded moments.
Then, state the obvious
So they think you a fool
And the final ingredient: silence,
A refusal to speak when there is nothing to say.
Build trust through all this by causing no one harm
And you will see them change; for you will have disturbed them
By being an enigma
A jagged piece of randomness in their daily routine
A wild card they hadn't planned on and would rather not deal with;
And because no trouble is physically present
And only contact with your mind threatens their slumber
You will find yourself ignored
Now the world is yours.
As long as you can live in it alone.
