I Would Not Be So Arrogant

I would not be so arrogant to refer to myself as a poet
Or even a Duhallow writer of note
Though self promotion nowadays does seem an in thing
You should leave it to others your praises to sing
In the age of the selfie some take love of self too far
There is always competition for attention where the aspirational are
The look at me syndrome it is Worldwide
Narcissism is known to have it's source in pride
With rhyming words i am one who does love to play
And i often do look at life in a negative way
With such an assumption who am i to disagree
Suppose we are what we are this is all we can be
And we all look at life in our ways differently
What is great to you may not be so to me.
