High-Fal-Oot-İN - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Those who act so high-fal-oot-in
Usually do their own horn toot-in
But down deep, they feel they are
Insecure and far below par

The inward confidence they seem to lack
They think is covered with their horn toot-in act
They puff out their chests, playing gung-ho
To mask a shot ego, hidden down low

A hammered ego terribly frayed
Needs more than a high-fal-oot-in horn toot-in band aid
They’ll never be rid of their feelings forlorn
By strutting around and blowing their horn
