The folly of pride

Sometimes we fail to see our faults
because of pride and haughty flaws
which tends to shut all friendship doors
even as chanticleer the bird recalls

A certain season with no remorse
he had to act a gross of chores
as a means to heal his sores
he gave his best to best the course

and all went well as a cause
so be jocund and prudent in tours
learn from chanticleer and get no curse
for pride goeth before the falls.
