“The Seat of the Scornful”

I’d always considered myself to be
something less than scornful.
Scorn implies pride
of a magnitude
I never knew I possessed
until one day
I looked down
and was surprised
to find myself firmly seated
above the scoffers and derelicts.
Resting comfortably
on my self-righteous perch,
pretending to be
much grander than
humanity.

*from Psalm 1
