When you are Big

When you are big,
You speak of you few.

When you are big,
At others you direct your praise.

When you are big,
Foibles and folly of yours,
In jest, you treat.

When you are big,
No aegis on your breast.

When you are big,
Unfasten fly pride.

When you are big,
At large and fugitive, your Self.

When you are proud,
Petite at best, stature!

When you understand,
Wise and Silly therefore you are.
