WARNING: Arrogance Ahead

Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain. –Friedrich Schiller

So you think you know more than me?
There’s no way that can be true.
Unless you have managed to learn and
Partake of the humility fruit.
It’s nectar is sweet as the morning dew.
Don’t forget that arrogance can regrow, so
It behooves you to work to be humble.
There is never a cure for this disease
Yet people insist this is not so.
 

Little thing inspired by yesterday’s prompt from the Light and Shade Challenge.

    True enough! It is the insistence that it is so that does the real damage.

    For some arrogance is a terminal disease. A very creative, and honest poem.
