Anatomy Of Arrogance
A shivering ball of fear
wrapped in a crust of pride
too thick for sharpest arrows
huddles alone but well protected.
Grown to (wo) man,
that shivering ball,
aglow with haughty lustre,
plies the difficult art
of strutting from a seated position -
hoping beyond all fearing
that none will ever come to know
the terror behind the mask.
Narcissus leaned forward
to better view his matchless beauty
and tumbled to watery doom.
how far can we lean in self adoration
before our coasts tilt into the seas?
