Specious

29 Oct

Little boy blue stop blowing your horn;
we need less of your propaganda this autumn morn.
The myths you continually try to bust,
are exactly what causes us not to trust.
The jokes you share to lessen the tension,
are more like truths you forgot to mention.

Greatness has no need to boast;
your ego hurts your message the most.
Anything that is actually truly great,
needs no promotion; it happens by fate.

    I like everything about this, except the fact that it’s so achingly true. Thanks.

      Thanks Gary. It took me weeks to give it a title. I so appreciate your feedback!
