In Full Conceit 2-1-21


A little ant was working hard
atop his little mound,
and thought that he was taller
than anything around.

A weasel saw that little ant
but didn't make a sound,
and thought that he was taller
than anything around.

A groundhog saw that weasel near
his home there in the ground,
and thought that he was taller
than anything around.

My dog was not the least amazed
and for them, he was bound.
He knew that he was taller still
than anything around.

I was the man who saw them all.
I shook with scoffing laugh.
In full conceit I stood there tall.
Behind me?  A giraffe.
