How the mighty have fallen

Standard

Look at her, oozing confidence
Oh! Its almost obscene
Such a conceited, cocksure, ding-a-ling
the world has never seen.

She knows it all, or so she thinks
Us lesser mortals aren’t worth her time
She won’t even listen to what you say
Unless you can say it in rhyme

Her feet never touch the ground
Her nose is always in the sky
Where the world totters, she dances through,
proudly prancing by

She’s got the world inside her palm
Like things can never go wrong
They never did either, not until
that fateful day came along

The day nature failed to respond
to the touch of her magic hand
Suffice to say, things did not go
at all as she had planned

Luck finally did a turnaround
while she walked Her hallowed halls
Its sad, but strangely satisfying
when the mighty finally fall

Her crimson cheeks were a sight to behold
Her hands and feet had gone all cold
Humbled, she looked ready to fold
Who could say she’d once been bold??

I may berate but cannot hate
for she is me and i am her
What happened, i shall never tell
I’ve locked it away in a secret cell
The lesson was learnt when things went wrong
Now make what you want to of this song

  1. ‘She won’t even listen to what you say
    Unless you can say it in rhyme’- ah, my dear, will you listen to my prayer if i say it true and clear? πŸ˜‰

    Like the disciplined rhyme scheme and the slight cold in the lines. Keep your nose in the air, i like you better that way πŸ™‚

    • I’ll always listen to your prayer, no matter which way u say it πŸ™‚

      And wow… My nose is beginning to angle up again after getting appreciated for being so pompous. You’re a true friend, for sure πŸ™‚
