Humility Or Humbug 2011

Humility Or Humbug


It was a humdrum day.

Nothing on my mind,

I looked up humble

Where I found humdingers:



For fingers.

Not a humph of sound,

For humanized

I pondered on the difference ’tween

Low self-esteem

And lack of self-importance:

One, humility,

The other, well, –

Just plain old insecurities.

It is a fine line, hard to recognize.

The insecure seem often humble

And the humble insecure.

Good to analyze,

Who is the one to tell?


Then we come to arrogance.
