That Bit Too Far

Self praise is taking praise that bit too far
Leave it to others to say of how marvelous you are
Yet so many nowadays their own praises do sing
Self promotion with them does seem the in thing
Some people others do like to impress
Without asking they tell you of their latest success
The look at and notice me syndrome is alive and thriving today
With some anyhow it is surely this way
The gift of humility is a great gift indeed
And of more people with it the Human World is in need
Leave your actions and your deeds for to speak for you
And others will give you the praise you are due
Of those into self praise i quickly do tire
There is little in them for me to admire.
