perhaps my preference for humility is now old fashioned and outdated
for it appears today that a bearing of superiority is more highly rated
when did it come to pass that lofty imperiousness rules the day
and pomposity and pretension became the preferred way to play?
should I now learn to serve at the feet of those better and smarter than I
and become a submissive little serf letting my individual creative spirit die?
when did haughty self-importance become the modern mantra
so that such lordliness is displayed without any regard for karma?
for in my humble opinion, there is no escaping basic cause and effect
as a end result of condescending arrogance what do we really expect?
