Clothing The Ego

if there is anything
that needs to be clothed
it is one's ego

leave it naked, running wild,
it would ruin the whole peace
and make a nuisance
of the person with it

get hold of it, steady it,
then cloth it and set it
in a proper mould
so that no tea can be spilt
when it rears its head

only after that can we talk
about clothing the man
