Shine not your spotlight upon me,
for that boisterous emission
must have the limelight NOW!
Quickly! before his candle
burns at both ends and his ego
drips drop by tallowed drop
to the floor and ignites a fire
in us all that will burn down
boundaries and illuminate our
quiet failings while the light
of our city on a hill shines
and our inadequacies are too big
to be covered with a bushel basket.
