The world belongs to the people who are either pompous or proud
This is something I’ve only recently figured out
Modesty and humility were virtues aeons ago
Now sadly enough they’re foolish faults which can never let you grow.
Blow your own trumpet and go all out to the tell one and all
How you’ve done a marvellous job of everything and have always stood tall
Preening like peacocks which was once considered vain
But now it is a necessity for mere survival and some gain
Hard work and honesty :virtues our parents lived by
Are slowly diminishing and will very soon die
It is a wayward upside down world now my friend
Have you ever thought if this how things continue how will it all ever end ??
