Early Warning System

This is a test,
this is only a test,
of the early hubris
warning system.

The first fifty years or so
you didn't pay any attention
when we knocked you on 
your butt.

With all the arrogance of youth
you hopped right up and
trivialized our warnings.
"I'm good, what's the big deal?
Take your best shot"

Well our best shot would 
have left you

What do you think about that?

We gods reserve that for those of you 
too prideful to take a hint.

You're not getting up so fast now.
These little shots will do
to remind you to get rid of
that dam ego.
