The Self Important Man

From The Birmingham Age Herald, August 1, 1913.

A young man who wore flaming ties
    Was loudly heard to say
He’d like to take a little rest,
    But could not get away.

It seems he thought the busy firm
    For which he was a clerk
Would only last the briefest time
    If he should stop from work.

And yet, if ever he got fired
    Some morning by the boss,
The people he says need him so
    Would scarcely feel his loss.

The world is full of men like that
    Whose self-inflation’s such
They think this world without their aid
    Would not amount to much.
