A Prouder Man Than You

Rating: 3.0

If you fancy that your people came of better stock than mine,
If you hint of higher breeding by a word or by a sign,
If you're proud because of fortune or the clever things you do --
Then I'll play no second fiddle: I'm a prouder man than you!

If you think that your profession has the more gentility,
And that you are condescending to be seen along with me;
If you notice that I'm shabby while your clothes are spruce and new --
You have only got to hint it: I'm a prouder man than you!

Inspiring, totally inspiring. This man was so with it so long ago. A classic case of an intelligent man stifled by the arteficial restraints of class and wealth.
