I'm Simply Better Than You
When I look into a pool and sense my noble bearing
in a reflection meant to dazzle and impress.
I see a gentle fellow imbued with love and caring
whose need for adoration has been long suppressed.
Now my humility is by far my greatest feature
and gives rise to all the glory I have achieved.
But rest assured my love for all the lesser creatures
may be bought and purchased for a modest fee.
I am a soul given to fits of quiet contemplation
and gladly suffer both your burdens and your strife.
And I am free from rebuke and surly accusations
from those who put some value on their life.
So like the moon that glistens in vibrant shining luster,
my love for you beams forth and warms the night.
So with all the humility my gentle soul can muster,
please step aside... you're standing in my light.
I remain a simple person filled with grace and humor
but far too humble to admit.
That my character is subjected to the rumors
where my love for you is only exceeded by my wit.
As such a thing carries with it a certain expiration
and on this we all agree.
But you will always find me in a state of morbid adulation
because the thing I love most of... is me.
