The Big Wheel

THE BIG WHEEL

Sometimes when you’re feeling important,

Sometimes when your ego’s in bloom,

Sometime when you take it for granted,

You’re the best qualified in the room.

Sometime when you feel that your going

Would leave and 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 your wrist,

Pull it out, and the hole that’s remaining,

Is a measure of how you’ll be missed.

You may splash all you please when you enter,

You can stir up the water galore,

But stop… you’ll find in a minute,

That it looks quite the same as before.

The moral in this quaint example

Is to do just the best you can,

Be proud of yourself, but remember,

There’s no indispensable man.
