Sometimes He Gets it Bad


Sometimes the bottom falls out 
because he comes to believe 
something good about himself
(superior even) and it 
turns out not to be true. 

Sometimes when he gets it 
bad he will just say, 
even if you deserve it,
“I'm not in the mood to
praise you right now. 
I need it all for myself." 

He will close his eyes 
and hoard all the praise 
he had ever had.
