Biting The Hand That Nourishes

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?
