Big Fish in a Small Pond

He’s a big fish in a small pond, swimming proudly and loudly;
He’s critically acclaimed, you know? Well, if not, he’ll show you!
He’ll walk you down his promenade with his trifling accolades
So you’ll be sure that he’s really somebody after this grand tour;
And if he offers you a tidbit of his talent, you should sit in awe
And return many thankings else he’ll give you a good spanking;
If only you knew, he’s been published and received his reviews!
What does it matter if the sea knows not that he even exists?
He has his small pond, you see, and so he persists as a big fish,
And will dish out his importance to all of the minnows around
With boundless pride and arrogance . . .
But will anyone know when he has died?
He’s a big fish in a small pond, swimming proudly and loudly!
Just a big fish in a small pond, swimming proudly and loudly!

  1. Yes!

    The struggle for existence, we all are goin thru

    we have our own small ponds to rule
    and a big pond (sea) to be ruled by,

    I wonder, where the small pond goes after its deadline is dead.

    is it a pond no more n gets mixed to larger ?
    But what are the clues? for making a small pond then?

    why do we have them?
    for what reasons ?

    very thoughtful
