Self-Made Men
© 2004, Roy Stucky

Make way for Self Made Men
Who'd rain if they'd descend.
Make way for Self Made Men
Whose means become our ends.
Make way for Self Made Men
Who carve the latest trend.
Make way for Self Made Men
Too stiff to ever bend.

Disdain giant shoulders to stand on their own,
Their pigmy puff pride will parade all alone.
Invent only what has been done long ago,
Discover what others already know.

Make way for Self Made Men
With loads of self to spend
Make way for Self Made Men
Too strong to need a friend.
Make way for Self Made Men
On whom we all depend.
At least so they pretend.
