ode to arrogance

L'arrogance de Gadenne

L’arrogance de Gadenne (Photo credit: opa guy)

perhaps my preference for humility is now old fashioned and outdated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?

    “for it appears today that a bearing of superiority is more highly rated” – 😉 hello, sir RK… well, what the… it appears that’s the trend. btw, i wrote a post before, with the title, Atmospheric Pressure, sort of questioning the present prevailing value set. uh, that was a strong one, unlike your humble poem above. i wish i could formulate things as gently as you do, ahaha…

    hope you’re having a restful weekend. regards to you and your dear ones. 🙂
