Half as Much
Half as much is royalty
Of how important I think me.
No fair mistake is overlooked.
I guess my ego’s overcooked.
Pretentious with the service here
I let them know that it’s quite clear
If anything is gone awry,
I’ll throw a tantrum, scream, and cry.
Would it not, more pleasant be,
If I, in soft humility,
Just offered up in quiet peace
And made instead, myself the least?
