Those With The Biggest Egos - Poem by Francis Duggan

Those with the biggest egos I pity most of all
To them the wise words do apply pride comes before a fall
At every financial setback their egos do deflate
The very thought of failure with them seems far more great
Than those with lesser egos who take things in their stride
The thought of failure to them not a great loss of pride
Their egos not over-inflated so with failure they can cope
With them hope springs eternal and they always live in hope
Those with the biggest egos at lack of success feel down
When things are going against them they are not seen in the town
When their egos are deflated they feel in suicidal mood
They wallow in self pity as in silence they do brood
'Twould seem they only can cope with success and with fame
The bigger is the ego the greater the sense of shame.
