Big egos, little egos | Daniel Weiss


Big egos, little egos. Egos wandering all about.
When conceit becomes arrogance, 
One turns into a swan without elegance.
A red herring, shining but pungent,
Glittering, with an acridity and without alacrity.
Humility, without humiliation, is the noblest goal,
Protruding above the surface like a sandy shoal.
An act of servility, leads to a state of humility,
Encouraged to overcome one’s inner swine.
And in the enigmatic aftermath,
King Midas, Icarus and Prometheus, all forgot to stay on the path.

Johnny Quest

A hero for the Boomers,
Could become one for the next generation of TikTok Zoomers?
What is your quest?
Is it the task that you do best?

Let’s not judge our tokens, like Hadji, for their identities,
Rather, because of their propensities.
Find the valor of Race Bannon,
And fire it into the world like a cannon.

Confront Baron von Freulich,
And do it with a little cheek.
Look and assess the situation,
Thusly, contributing to his abdication.

Become loyal like Bandit,
And let your consciousness be expanded.
Then you’ll be like Johnny Quest,
With a pluck to which the world can attest.
