Welcome Guest in Our Own Skin: A Satiric Poem
Have you ever thought of this strange fact
that we are so nice to so many of our guests
with all that courtesy, care, pampering, and tact
while in our own skin just good for intruders and pests.
We entertain them, make them laugh and at ease
and we offer them foods that they will surely like
we may even downsize our ego to appease
exposing our jugular in a self teasing spike.
We may never forget to apologize
for this or that not being perfect and best
way too busy kissing their asses as to realize
how we deserve that same treatment as our guest.
At the end of farce we walk them to the door
concerned they might drift into that messy room
again apologizing as if to keep high our gossip score
for any possible imperfection being seen in their zoom.
So, why not invite ourselves to be a guest
in our own skin and in whole our life just as well
to treat ourselves with that friendliness and the rest
instead of keeping ourselves imprisoned in that ugly shell.
