Ego Trip Trap

Mr ‘Self’ walked down the street, with ‘Breath’, his closest friend
He met a man called ‘Ego’, who started to pretend
“Good health to you on this fine day”, Mr Ego spouted loudly
“But why is it, you don’t bow down”, he asked ‘Self’ very proudly
“I’m so important, don’t you know, I make the world go round
All I ask for you to do, is kneel upon the ground”
Mr Self breathed in the air; his eyes looked straight ahead
“If I bow to you on this fine day, I surely will be dead’
