There was a man, haughty and proud,
‘Bow to me,’ he yelled at the crowd,
Rude he was and harsh was he,
And he cried, ‘Respect me!’
‘I am immortal,’ he challenged nature,
And God thought, What a foolish creature!
Committing sin after sin, he roared, ‘Foolish people, I’ll surely win,’
And his face lit up with a boastful grin.
Until one day, the God came down,
The foolish creature still had a frown,
He couldn’t withstand the forces of nature.
Lost were the dream of this mortal creature.
No one can ever overpower God,
After all he is our ultimate lord.
