Omniscient OxyMoron

He knows everything.
You can’t tell him anything.
No matter what you may propose,
it’s guaranteed that he’ll disclose
it’s something he already knows
… because he knows everything.

He’s a visionary
— a self-promoting luminary.
His confidence cannot be shaken.
When he speaks, the dead awaken!
Think he’s wrong? Well, you’re mistaken!
… because he knows everything.

The wise man views himself a fool.
On him this lesson’s lost.
But enlightenment seldom comes
from breathing one’s own exhaust.

He’s an oracle, of course,
— a rare omniscient tour de force.
Lesser bullies cower to him.
God’s own voice is channeled through him.
Alas, his ego will undo him
… because he knows everything.
