Humble Pie

Humble pie is a strange thing

Separates Solomon from a deranged king

Many have succeeded and many have failed

On many a cross the arrogant are nailed

Many a fool jester for fame

Dishonoring and embalming the game

Seen from a distance consorting with fools

Laughing at that those stay oiling their tools

Convincing themselves they conquered the world

Foolishly mistaking monsters for squirrels

Constantly ignoring the pendulum swing

This is why the paupers will never be king

Ridiculing the wise man calling him lame

The pages of history wont acknowledge their name

One cardinal rule for success under the sky

The righteous rule the jungle and eat humble pie
