"...I was born / To people without egos who did not believe in ids"

Remiss Like This


A new friend once observed that I am diffident

Would never force myself on you nor shout

My capabilities unto the trees

And that for an author this seemed different

But I have a great deal to be modest about


I neither interview myself nor toot my horn

Do not doodle my own ding-dong all the day

But would rather listen to you about your kids

And seldom Google myself since I was born

To people without egos who did not believe in ids


...Except for my father who never would bother

With me but we never noticed anyway...


Vanity of vanities!  My vanity

Is here somewhere I just cannot find it right now

I misplaced it along with my sanity

Until I find it I can muddle through somehow

Remiss like this but I could sure use a kiss

Right now, bro. I sure could use a kiss too. This is great on the human level that we come from and just being "us." Love and peace to you, Stevie. Regis

I think that expressing ones own views and tooting ones own horn too often is ego maniacal but once in a while it does reinforce ones ego if the world has tried to squash it.
