The egoistic man

There was a poor old man

A poor old man was he

He used to pray to his god

Selfish as can be

.

Why do you not help me out

Help me to be rich

Please give me lots of wealth

Don’t treat me like a bitch

.

A holy man took pity on him

Wanting to give him a break

So he too prayed for him

Hoping it wasn’t a mistake

.

God appeared before him

Is this a joke my son

This man thinks only of him

What will he become

.

The Holy man insisted again

And God agreed to help

To help the selfish man

I will offer him wealth

.

The poor man was off one day

On his way to pray

Every day he walked the same

He never changed his way

.

So God prepared some gems

Priceless incredible gleam

He put them on the poor man’s path

They only had to be seen

.

I know, I’ll close my eyes today

The man said to himself

He walked across the gems

Without realising their wealth

.

What are these things under my feet

As he kicked them out the way

That stupid silly selfish man

Would live to regret that day

Be famous

.

Want to be noticed

Crave attention

A better life

Some affection

.

Try everything

Everything more

Sell your body

Become a whore

.

Exhaust yourself

Self esteem expired

Final moments

It’ll come to the wire

.

We’re all poets, writers

Authors, the like

All fighting for fame

To improve our life

.

Kill to be famous?

Sell your soul?

Cheat, take or steal?

Ride the black hole?

.

Sure, yes you would

You’d do what you can

To be famous, why not?

You gotta be the man
