Look How Good I Am!

Updated on June 8, 2012

Ode of the Thoughtless Among Us

Look how good I am in all I do,

I never say a word

Against the herd.

I am steadfast and pristine,

I make no concessions

In between.

I join in without a ponder,

Of my conscience

‘Cause it doesn’t matter.

If I disagree or wrong,

For power is all I need

Anyway, love is gone.

    When power reigns supreme, when being accepted is seen as gain, what is left? Thanks, Faith. God bless.

    Thank you for your comments Persypy and glmclendon. I wanted to say that if one looks inside themselves for reasons to follow the crowd it usually is because of need of acceptance and love. Many, to me, are unconscious of this. Perspy - you're right. I was referring to the sycophant, and the "collective" personality, the extreme of which produces facism.

    Good work. Why would I want to join something and have no input. I would have my name on their rooster and that is all.

    Stay Well

    Love, except false love of self, surely would be "gone", if we all simply wanted to join the herd unheard, or worse still as a sycophant.
