They Do Have Swollen Egos - Poem by Francis Duggan

They do have swollen egos but for that them one cannot blame
Since fans beg them for autographs and loudly chant their name
The millionaire sports men and women how arrogant they do seem
So proud and self conceited and so full of self esteem
If people were chanting my name how conceited i too would be
And any humbleness I'd show would be false humility
For too much of adulation does go to the recipient's head
And people do become arrogant with their egos too well fed
Perhaps of them I'm jealous but few who would not like wealth and fame
And if those who have both feel self conceited for that can one them blame
For they are the centre of attention where-ever to they do go
And they are the people the sports mad fans wish to know
And tis by their adoring public that celebrities are made
And so many hard luck stories for one to make the grade.
