OBJECTS IN THIS MIRROR MAY APPEAR LARGER THAN THEY ACTUALLY ARE

Machismo, Bravado and Braggadocio met for drinks.
Each one thinks he’s the bigger man.
Looks can deceive and they all believe
their charms will have the cuties in their arms.

The first one played to the ladies, but
was shot down in flames. It seems
they’ve heard his all lines before.
The next was a pushy lout,

an over-aggressive boy scout, always prepared.
he never spared them from his conquests
and adventures, but had them scared at hello.
The loud mouth was harmless, all talk

but no game. It was a shame.
Lesson learned in three spurned.
Smoke and mirrors are great devices,
but just being you, truly suffices.

You should always live within your means.
Things are always bigger than they seem.
