It Does Seem Sad To Say

Suppose from life we receive what is  only our due
And that self praise is no praise i hold to be true
But nowadays those not into self promotion in life may not succeed
Human values have changed very much so indeed
Than when i was a teenager a decade short of my prime
In retrospect going back half of a century in time
When those into self promotion were those others tried to drag down
They never became the  best loved in the town
But self promotion does seem the  in thing of today
If you do not praise self as an unknown you will stay
The fact does remain and fact never lie
That we live in the age  of the me, myself and i
And it does seem sad to say so very sad indeed
That the humble are those who in life don't succeed.
