Dodging the raindrops, umbrella arbitrary
Amongst plethora o’ undeserving thorns, a rose though not fragrant
Even though ‘team’ in maintenance, selflessness forthcoming not
No ‘i’ in lager but matters not to the misguided ego.
Disloyal parasite, disingenuous disposition
Biting the hand that feeds, deflecting thy inadequacies
Humanity devoid on thine vain-glorious parade float
Round the block anew, till self-indulgence fulfilled.
Who keeps score on opportunist’s wants?
Karma reticent of involvement; chameleon off-colour
O’Dowd’s boy’s dreamt of red, gold and green
Man without conviction has self-obsessed dreams.
When does self-absorption desist in mind mercenary?
Behaviour self-centred; imposter soft-centred ne’er arrives
With thy unmindful o’ foibles, unaware o’ deficiencies
Is remedying fissure a project too far?
