    If you're never wrong
    you're rarely right
    Like an angry Fido
    all bark and little bite
    And when they do nip you,
    it's felt, but doesn't amount to much
    Because you've taken your ego to
    heights that not even you can touch
    I'd say, Get Over Yourself, but alas
    you can't, and frankly my dear, you're slacking
    Perhaps there's been some Fatherly guidance
    in life that has been lacking
    And say hello to Jesus, you've probably
    passed him by
    While exalting yourself
    on high
    Only the good Lord knows how you've gotten
    this far thinking the world should laud you
    Believing that even in error the universe
    should certainly applaud you
    I suppose I should lend you a tissue
    for that hemorrhaging nose bleed you've aquired
    from dangling from the heighest of heights...
    Gee, aren't your arms tired?
    Tired of struggling to pull yourself up to
    that lofty existence of the exalted one
    dangling like a self proclaimed star, unfortunately
    destined to plummet into the heat of the sun
    That oh so perfect one who could never
    possibly be mistaken, but such is their plight
    Cause if you are never wrong
    you are rarely ever right
    And all that's left
    is an admission you'd never make
    and that would be
    that even YOU have made a mistake

    "And say hello to Jesus, you've probably
    passed him by
    While exalting yourself"


    not enough ppl in the world know that--we can't expect to be praised not conceited wise, if we don't give the praise where it is always due--which is to the one and only Father. some of us need to be whipped so that we can see that the pain we feel is not because of stupidity but of blindness........a piece worth continuing i say...............one love

    Thank you brotha Rich. True praise is not a pat on the back and then a kick in the butt. Your response is much appreciated poet.
