    Such a small, small man, within and without
    All because he's unhappy with himself and filled w/self-doubt

    To make himself feel BIGGER, he puts others down
    But when given a return volley, he puts on a frown

    His obvious low self-esteem metastasizes like a cancerous tumor
    And as long as he's the server, he excuses insults as just his "quirky humor"

    Oh, when he laughs at another's expense, everything is fine, bright & sunny
    But when he's the butt of the joke, suddenly, it aint quite so funny

    Somewhere along his life's path, he certainly dropped the ball
    He also drives a big truck because even his penis is small

    Yet all through his cellophane facade, he still tries to flex
    But what he's really got is "THE LITTLE MAN'S COMPLEX."

    I mean no harm here, please understand

    I am merely here to suggest take another look at your title.

    I am in NO way trying to be funny.

    Before we take a shot at someone, just look both ways first.

    Again I'm saying this with all due respect. Just an observation about taking another look at your title, because that title is next to your name.

    Once I named a thread "Dumb F***" on another site. Then when I read it on the front page. I said "hey that's next to my name" lol. So I changed it.

    Of course i'm not asking that you change it. I'm just merely making an observation. Please understand I have good intentions.

    Thanks.

    Thank you, Brother Hellogood for your observation.

    However, I wrote THIS poem over a year ago....Actually, except for a few response pieces, ALL of the poems I've posted here are OLD pieces.

    I just haven't been inspired to write much lately. I used to write everyday.

    But, I do have all my poetry SAVED and when I read another poem that reminds me of one of mine, I'll sometimes post it.

    That is what happened with THIS one....I was reminded of it from Sister Moham's piece, "E(go)motion."

    Now, the real-life SUBJECT of THIS piece is a man who lives in Atlanta, GA. He's 52 y/o and he IS a "Pitifully Petty" man! ---Yes, he drives a big truck; and, yes, (unfortunately for ME) I happen to personally KNOW that his PENIS is SMALL. :lol: And after I noted these other characteristics in him, I wrote THIS poem.

    So, you really shouldn't ASSUME that I am "taking a shot at someone."

    But, if anyone else reads this poem and sees himself in it, then that is NOT my fault. :cool:

    HERE is the exchange which pricked my memory on THIS poem...





    AND I have another old piece about "ego" as well.

    I think I'll post it.....

    You said this piece was is a REAL LIFE subject, then you say i shouldn't assume you're taking a shot at someone, whether you're taking a shot or have taken the shot, you'll still shot. lol

    So this is directed at someone who that maybe makes no difference, i just want making an observation that your title is next to your name that's all, I appreciate your openness.

    Looking forward to your next post.

    Well, you DO have a point about that "taking a shot" part. lol

    But, trust, I wasn't just "taking a shot." ---I was shooting for "Two in the chest and one in the head will sho make SURE that sucka is DEAD!" :lol:

    Actually, when I read Sister Moham's piece, "E(go)motion," I thought to myself, "Does SHE know him TOO?!" lol

    And, whether it's "next to my name" or not, it doesn't reflect me.

    Thanks again, though!

    Yeah, Brother Rich, most of us have had one or two who "slipped under our radar." :lol:
