Spectrum of Ignorance

Arrogance rests on the spectrum of ignorance Somewhat camouflaged by its superior air, I surmise one requires huge gulps of intolerance To maintain equilibrium teetering there. “Pride goes before a fall” intones the holy book, It does not appear to discomfit the haughty Who traipses through a life without a second look To monitor their poor behavior so naughty. Neither do they respond when called on to explain Their attitude so warped by self-satisfaction, Some have suggested they are marginally insane I rather think they are soiled with putrefaction. These narcissistic fools so in love with themselves, Believe they merit a place on museum shelves.

I agree with this "I rather think they are soiled with putrefaction."

Thanks. That's pretty blunt, but it's how I feel.

A museum shelf might be a good place! Preferably back in storage somewhere.

I couldn't agree more, Jeff. Perhaps among those worn-out volumes no longer in circulation, pending disposal. How's that? Thanks, Jeff.
