Modestest

Modesty is where I shine!
The Most Unboastful trophy’s mine.
Searching for a swollen head?
Look everywhere but here instead.
We’ll have to pack a microscope
If we’re to have the slightest hope
Of finding anything when we go
On safari for my ego.
Once, when cornered, I confessed
That I’m the spotlight-dodgiest,
But begged them to forget me when
The Nameless Hall of Fame checked in.
Suffice to say, you’ll never hear
Me touted Person of the Year
Unless for Anonymity,
In which case, well, we’ll never see.
