Your ego
Ain’t your amigo
My dear friend.

It will taunt you
Even haunt you
Until you bend.

If you hunt it
Or confront it
It’ll self-defend.

No give and take
A coiled snake
Bites in the end.

King Arthur was wiser,
More understanding
And very bright.

Lancelot was young and
Full of himself, but at least
He was a knight.

They came after dark
Into my room
No longer able to wait. 

“Come with us,
Join our ranks.  You’ll
Meet a noble fate.”

Find me a horse and
Shiny armor,
Even if on loan.

What I wouldn’t give
To save someone’s life,
Maybe my own.

A steak
Doesn't look like a steer,
Steers commit all
They have to give.

An egg doesn't look
Like a hen,
At least hens
Get longer to live.

Bacon doesn't look
Like a pig, but
We do when we take
More than we need.

If steak could still moo
Or bacon still oink,
We'd surely eat more
Grown from seed.
