There Are Not Many Of Them
There are not many of them so few one could name
Who remain down to earth despite widespread fame
Those who retain some humility despite widespread success
By their lack of bravado many people impress
Most people with success get carried away
The look at me syndrome with many an in thing of today
So many with over inflated egos have what is known as a big head
In the twenty first century humility is all but dead
In an age when many their own praises are only too willing to sing
Too much public admiration for their sort is not a good thing
For many a lot of praise is not healthy for the mind
Why do they make small gods of the narcissistic kind?
The humble successful to say the least few
And this is not saying anything that is new.
