About Arrogance

Poem By Melanie Emikohe

Arrogance is the adult
that shields the lame child;
not a captain's or a king's
but his who tried to be
but couldn't be!

Sarcasm even to the calm;
exaggerates a stand
before they could doubt,
before it's discerned
what's all in him!

Comments about About Arrogance

Ah yes the hidden child inside the arrogant a** is always tempting to uncover.
