We Live In An Age

We live in an age when boasting is acceptable and self praise is a thing that is seen as okay
Though i am one who cannot admire braggarts respect to them i never wish to pay
Leave it to others for to sing your praises that's how it is and that's how it should be
You are boasting when you tell others of how great you are at least anyway that's how it seems to me
Arrogance and boasting are closely related they seem to go together rather well
The boasters glorify self above all others of their achievements they are too willing to tell
To anyone prepared to listen to them bragging self promotion seems the in thing of the time
But then suppose for to solicit admirers can never be looked upon as a crime
Scarce a day goes by that i do not meet a braggart out of sheer politeness i listen to them brag
They make sure that you hear of their achievements not shy to wave their self promotion flag
One might say their egos over-inflated their favourite people me, myself and i
They like to place themselves on a pedestal that self praise is no praise most definitely not a lie
Yet we live in an age when boasting is acceptable and some do promote themselves in a big way
Without being asked to they will sing to you their praises there are many like them in the World today.
