Ponpous Percy - Heading .jpg


By Josie Whitehead

Pompous Percy

Pompous Percy, short and proud;
Head uplifted in a cloud.
     Haughty face and stubbly chin.
     Bald on top with reddish skin.

With beady eyes and roman nose,
He thinks: 'I’m better than all those!'
     With bloated ego, sullen face,
      He'll firmly keep you in your place.

You’ll never get the last word in. 
He’ll never ever let you win!
     Rudeness is his stock in trade.
     His aim’s to make us all afraid.

With paunchy stomach, specs on nose,
His self-importance really shows.
     His strutting gait, the way he speaks –
     Outward show is what he seeks.

Pretentious people: Take good care
When outward show of pride you wear.
     Perhaps you may now wear a crown
     But many a man has been brought down.

When people see your ostentation
This will cause them much frustration.
     With stealth they’ll cut you down in size
     And bask in bliss at your demise.
