Some time when you are feeling important
Some time when your ego is in bloom
Some time when you take it for granted
You are the best qualified in the room

Some time when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow this simple instruction
and see how it humbles your soul

Take a bucket and fill it with water
Put your hand in it up to the wrist
Pull it out, and the hole that is remaining
Is a measure of how you much will be missed

Splash all you please when you enter
You can stir up the water galore
But stop, and you will find in a minute
That it looks quite the same as before

The moral in this quaint example is
Just do the best that you can!
Be proud of yourself, but remember:
there is no Indispensable Man!
