The Ego’s Prank

23 Sep

The Ego’s Prank

The biggest prank the Ego plays on unsuspecting minds
Is taking others’ intentions and pulling down the blinds
Something said or done by someone else gets misconstrued
The Ego’s own motives behind those words or actions brood

It whispers, “What if I did that? Here would be why I would
My motives would selfish, not for any kind of good”
And so the genuine selfless actions of others are
Corrupted by the suspicious Ego which wants to spar

A sad, sad joke that’s played on many who just can’t believe
That there are some people out there who don’t steal and deceive
Because that would be their motive for giving with no thought
Of what they will get in return ‘cause what they want is squat

They simply give because it’s right, they care because it’s just
They listen to their inner soul, not Ego’s greedy lust
For power, respect, admiration, popularity
Very funny, Ego, ha ha ha, ho ho, hee hee
