A Pretty Good Me

I\’m no cape-unfurling Superman.
Forget being an Übermensch.

A Lincoln\’s a far cry.
A Mahatma? Not in ten millennia.

I\’m a poor facsimile of dad.
My bro\’s got a better mug.

But one thing I’m sure of:
I’m a pretty good me.

And the day I become
A poor imitation of I,

Sincerity will take a hike

And I’ll stop flattering myself.
