Selfishness…

I’m a lone wolf in this world called Selfishness
Posing myself as pious soul of righteousness

My Tail vigorously wags as my mouth salivates
When taking things from others only matters

My Head swags violently as my mouth dries
When giving things to others raises alarms

And my best friend called ego always supports
When I it hears foul cries from spiritual sharks

It feeds me with justifications overtly prestigious
Gives me confidence I can be covertly capricious

Masks my Machiavellian maneuvers as mildness
Browbeats others into pandering to my brashness

Meekly blinks before my avaricious greediness
Justifies my ungrateful demeanor as courteous

Raises hue n cry when opposed by righteousness
Pretends as victim to unreasonable fastidiousness

Surely I’m a formidable force for others to surpass
As only instinctively poised presence can outclass
