The Indispensable Man

One day when you’re feeling important,
One day when your ego’s in bloom,
One day when you take it for granted
You’re the best qualified man in the room.

One day when you feel that your going
Would leave an ‘unfillable hole’
Just follow these simple instructions
And see how it humbles your soul.

Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hands in it, up to the wrists,
Pull them out, and the hole that remains
Is a measure of how you’ll be missed.

You may splash all you please as you enter,
You may stir up the water galore,
But stop and you’ll find in a moment
That it looks just the same as before.

The moral of this is quite simple,
Do always the best that you can,
Be proud of yourself, but remember
There is no indispensable man!
