The “Me” Monster

There’s a dubious fellow
I really wish I didn’t know.
He’s the “Me” Monster.
The “Me first, Me perfect,
Me better-than-the-rest” Monster.
A felonious, erroneous,
And never harmonious monster.
A fiend and a foe,
A malcontent deviant.
And just when I think
I’ve got rid of the rascal,
He’s back in my life
Causing such a hassle.
Oh, what shall I do
To be free of his whims?
I’ll just have to learn
To ignore him.
