The Indispensable Man

Unless you are the sun, you are dispensable, how true.


Sometime, when youre feeling important,
Sometime, when your ego is in bloom,
Sometime, when you take it for granted,
Youre the best qualified in the room.

Sometime when you feel that your going,
Would leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow this simple instruction,
And see how it humbles your soul.

Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hand in it, up to the wrist;
Pull it out and the hole thats remaining,
Is a measure of how youll be missed.

You may splash all you please when you enter,
You can stir up the water galore,
But stop, and youll find in a minute,
That it looks quite the same as before.

The moral in this quaint example,
Is do just the best you can,
Be proud of yourself, but remember,
Theres no indispensable man.
