Disappointment To One With A Huge Ego - Poem by Francis Duggan

Disappointment to one with a huge ego is a huge mental fall
But to the humble of mind the biggest disappointment not that big at all
At least anyhow this is how it seems to me
Though others may see it in ways differently
For the egotistical a deflated ego must be such a sad thing
When no one wishes to hear them when their own praises they sing
Since they wish to have an admired and loved face
When out of the limelight they feel out of place
When a good impression on others they can no longer make
Such a disappointment the egotistical find hard to take
Of admiration their sort of can never get enough
Not to be center of attention on them has to be very tough
The egotistical love to be known and admired far and wide
And a deflated ego to them is a huge dent to their pride.
