A storm in the tea cup



A storm in the tea cup

I belong to human race
The crown of the creation
Truth is my worst enemy
Lies are my girlfriends
Sitting on the wings of flattery
I fly to the heights of egotism
Selling my leisure
And all my pleasure
I bought a snare of busyness
Letting the gigantic world aside
I've locked myself up
Ragging a storm in the tea cup
