Self Importance

Self Importance

The best thing since sliced bread

This astounding knowledge in my head
For I am the best at what I do
The system would fail if not for you

I’m the biggest cog in the wheel
Which keeps it turning without a spill
They flatter and praise, all you do
Their very existence is down to you

I strut around, just like a king
I’m so important too everything
Then it ended with a “chip”
They stuck my knowledge on a “byte”
A computer took my job over night

My self-importance is no more
As the smiling boss showed me the door
My world had ended with a thump

                       When “chips” for brains they did dump
