Best in the World,

I am.

 

Or so he claimed.

 

A bold claim,

or so I thought.

 

Met a few lately,

seem a very select group.

 

Self-confident proclamations,

to meer minions

in comparison

to their stature.

 

The audacity worries me.

Doubt assails me.

But perhaps there is

a world exam of sorts.

 

A championship event.  

Enter at your own risk,

I imagine the forms

must say. 

 

and in fine print -

egos can be destroyed

(in the harsh glare of evidence.)

 

Or perhaps 

there is a meter. 

 

A German contraption

it would be.

 

Starts at

Completey Hopless

and

winds

around

to

Best in the World.

 

I wonder

whether

they

secretly

measure

themselves

every night.
