You Are Much Too Generous

You Are Much Too Generous

Why is it you 'must' remind me,
Of your greatness periodically?
What's up with that?

'Well...
If you are reminded and I am convinced,
Eventually I won't be left to do all the PR.'

And...?

'And what? '

What about me?

'What about you?
As long as you do what you're suppose to do,
I'll let you entertain the notion of being just as great.
We'll create an equal opportunity campaign!
How's that? '

You are much too generous.

'Tell me about it.
I've been trying to convince the others of that,
For years, decades, lifetimes.'

Don't get too full of yourself.
One day you might find yourself,
Swimming to catch up to that boat you claimed...
You hand built alone with no help!
