Self Pity is a party, as far as parties go
That poisons all the party’s guests
And feeds each one with woe.
And to pity self is such a waste
of time and space and all--
and leaves the guest of honor
in his mouth the taste of gall.
To have a pity party for self is such a sin
because it makes too much of self and
dwells too much within.
A fool is at the center, and that steals all the fun
I better say "no thank you," I really cannot come.
