This might be unfinished. I could see it getting a lot longer.

Steve did not believe in intelligence tests. He thought they were irrelevant until questions were added such as, “A girl comes up to you and start to flirt, what do you do?” Nonetheless, he found intelligence to be quantifiable and he awarded most people with very little. He preferred his opinions on this to be described as “accurate” rather than “unfair” or “cruel.” After all, not everyone can be intelligent. As for the idea that there are different kinds of intelligence (i.e. “street smarts”), he found this to be ludicrous as well. If a person was intelligent enough, they should be able to manipulate every situation to their advantage.
The-girl-Steve-was-in-love-with thought Steve was stupid. (He also thought she was stupid, but that was another matter). She thought he was stupid because he had cheated on her.
“But I just wanted something physical,” he argued.
The-girl-Steve-was-in-love-with thought that if a person was intelligent, they could use their logic to out-weigh the desires of their genitalia.
“But I was drunk/high/drunk and high,” he argued.
The-girl-Steve-was-in-love-with thought that if a person was intelligent, they would not be drunk/high/drunk and high around someone that would increase the blood flow in their genitalia, though she didn’t necessarily find being drunk/high/drunk and high unintelligent in itself.
The-girl-Steve-was-in-love-with was very liberal and she thought that in order to be intelligent, a person must be very liberal.
However, lots of people found the-girl-Steve-was-in-love-with to be stupid because she was a socialist. In return, she thought these people were stupid for their enthusiasm about an economic system that required a large lower class and a small upper class. She also thought that altruism was part of being intelligent. The people that found her love of socialism to be stupid often claimed that she didn’t understand economics. This was true; she only understood the social repercussions of said economic systems.
Steve thought she was stupid because she studied things like the social repercussions of said economic systems. Steve liked science and math. The-girl-Steve-was-in-love-with told him that most of the things he studied involved level-one learning (i.e. memorization). This caused a lot of arguments between the two of them, which caused both of them to have stupid yearnings for other people.

Is this a poem?

I am supposed to write a poem about intelligence today coincidentally.

Things just get formatted incorrectly.

Alright. It seemed like it could be.
