THOUGHTS OF GRANDEUR

Folder: 
z NEW WORKS

 

 

Yeah, they’ll try

             to delude me

          with thoughts of grandeur

 

and I am unworthy

of all these awards

     the accolades

          are undeserved

 

my bows are meaningless

 

            and that is

                  all to say

       the laundry is done

           and dinner is cooked

 

and a beer

         is consumed

      readily in the early

                   morning sun

 

greed sets in again

 

hustle is not enough

to carry us anymore

             It’s too late

           to do any better

Maybe

Some of your accolades are deserved.  As long as the presenter isn't trying to talk you into something.

 

I don't think the bank is a good judge of character, based pn their behavior, so maybe a low bank balance is a sign of morality and good judgment nowadays.  Maybe keep the awards and accolades and leave the portfolios and asset streams for weaker souls.
