I attempted to write about the pitfalls of pride. Anyway...
They say every family has one
One that ticks on emotion
The public smells the weakness
The family hides the secret
His last name is the same as yours
He's your shame in this game we keep score
Pride is one's humiliation
Puffed up by education
Looking for salvation
Perfect teeth framed by your smile
Ladies gaze for a while
Athletics come easy
Who'll be your next Sweetie
But in time, you'll pass your prime, lose hair
You'll get fat, wear a hat, we'll stare...
Do they really notice?
Think they even care?
Only if they benefit
And they get a share.
Saved, earned, attained wealth
All at a cost to your health
Cut corners, didn't buy insurance
Always charmed, not taken by chance
Bad luck strikes, gets all types, your cash flows...
Lost your soul, no control, so it goes....
