Do Leave It To Others - Poem by Francis Duggan

Self promotion nowadays with many seems to be the in thing
But it would be better to leave it to others your praises to sing
Though boasters it does seem are no longer rare
People with some humility have discretion and are more self aware
If you want to hear boasters you need not walk far
No further in distance than your local public bar
Like every other pub of this sort it has it's own share
But then boasters in pubs have never been rare
That kindness and compassion can blossom in genuine love of self does seem true indeed
And of more of their kind the Human World is in need
But boasters are narcissistic and to self can only relate
This false sense of greatness of themselves they create
And though self promotion nowadays with many seems the in thing
Do leave it to others your praises to sing.
