Pride Will Shake

Pride will shake
my humble head
for me
at others who don’t know
that I know
better
know it all
before the fall.

Pride will shake
my helping hand
gladly
when no one else will
feed the star
all ready
set to praise
me yet.

Pride will loose
its hand-grip
only
when its heart is cut
past curing
on the day I die
upon its lie
that good is of my own
sweet making.
