I’m Clever Whenever


I'm clever whenever
there's no one around.
Alone, on my own,
I profess I'm profound.

In private, I'm Einstein.
Secluded, I'm smart.
My genius increases
the more I'm apart.

If you think I'm clueless,
it isn't a trick.
When people are present
I'm dumb as a brick.

But don't think I'm daft
or not mentally sound.
Whenever I'm clever
there's no one around.
