foolish ego

foolish is the man who may, ego driven, self fancies hey, though just a mortal drip, engorged but nondescript, self esteem soon fades away... Don

    Oh, Sigmund Freud would love this one, Don, I think you've very much summed it up. The id, the ego, the super ego, they feed each other until they are "engorged". At the end you lose your identity. You're one smart cookie, Don! Best wishes, Mikki
