Pompous ass

He sits in judgment
On his throne of
Self-loathing

Nothing to show
For his time in
Existence

But material possessions
He wants others
To covet

Understanding not
Why his family
So perfect

Do not bring happiness
He thinks he deserves

Yet never questions why
He diverts his own reflection

Afraid of what he’ll find
If faced with the man in the mirror
