“Big Head”


Never treat others with scorn
Your’e only here ‘cause you were born’
Although your’e way up
You may not stay up
Stop tooting your horn
Most of the wealth that you possess
Got, on the luck of success.
On friendship you should never frown
You’ll need those same friends on the weary way down.
So get a cap that fits you
Not one that won’t fit a swollen head,
And don’t ignore old friends around you
And fill their hearts with painful dread;
Remember greater people than you
Fall at the wayside.
A reminder to an ACTOR.

A reminder to an ACTOR.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
