HUMBLE PIE - Buzzwords

" Those who serve arrogance as their main course will eat humble pie for dessert. " ~~~ Frank. K. Sonnenberg. Humble Pie can be sweet Or it can be tart. It's down to our attitude when we eat And take the lessons to heart. Either way, it's good for us! It keeps us in our place. A bit like meds, unpleasant at first, But a change is seen in our face. A better side of our self shines out And it makes others smile. For the good of our personality We must eat of it once in a while. Written 11th January 2022 For the BUZZWORDS contest Sponsor: Kim Rodrigues
