pride

who am I I’ve heard them ask
hid behind this jester’s mask
but I am drawn upon a way
that shuns the languid light of day
and there I’ll meet the ancient beast
who hungers for his fleshy feast
and every wound I ever felt
has left it’s mark upon my pelt
and every man who ever swore
that they would serve me evermore
broke their promises for jest
yet claim they did it for the best
and I must fight though I would quit
to join the angels where they sit
and watch the passing human tide
inflated by their feckless pride

        It’s an old saying, have never delved into it.

    • To me it begs the question “who is/are the prideful one/s? πŸ˜€

        Those who sold their soul to the devil, took what they wanted, then attempted to refute him by rising above and claiming to be god-like..that would be my first guess!! πŸ™‚ Second guess would be the “boogerbear”. πŸ˜€
