The Atomic Weight of Arrogance

Politicians, self-absorbed business tycoons

super star athletes and various other baboons

have this special quality which we all endear

thinking they are above us they make it perfectly clear


they're thoughts, needs and wants are second to none

they want these important issues known to everyone

czars, kings, dictators, potentates put them in a line

actors, music stars, the schoolyard bully even comes to mind


we have all known or seen them digitally displayed publicly

holding down with tightly clenched fist if we disagree

they have been endowed with preordained magic powers

sprinkled by their own private god's golden showers


they have always known more than mere mortal man

with more intelligence in one finger thats always been the plan

some seem confused that we don't all see them as our hero

last I checked the atomic weight of arrogance is still a whopping zero
