NaPoWriMo Day 22

Today’s prompt was to “engage with different languages and cultures through the lens of proverbs and idiomatic phrases.” We were asked to look at proverbs from other cultures and use these as the basis of a poem. I found a phrase I loved to describe someone who’s too full of himself and so that’s what my (short) poem focuses on today.

The Ego

He’s ripping clouds with his nose

Strolling through life, looking down on the world

He’s too big for his boots

But too small minded to care –

Does he know he’s just

A jackdaw among peacocks?
