It's Tricky

Beware of the insidiousness of pride.
It is the master of camouflage.
It eases it's way into the spirit of your attitude
and in your heart it will set up lodge.
Beguiling is that thing called pride.
It gives the impression of being smart.
She places bets against your mind
and will slither into your heart.
Pernicious as gossip dressed up as concern.
Like a crisp Red Delicious concealing a worm.
As a well defined eye of a violent hurricane
seeking to eradicate humble thoughts in your brain.

Beware of the insidiousness of pride.
It will populate anywhere it can
Moving its way from your heart
Showing up in the workings of your hand.
