Petty

Though it is

The third definition

In the dictionary

“Small mindedness”

Is something

To abhor

In others.

When it

Raises its

Bleakness in me

I am chagrined,

Mystified.

There it is

Just when

I thought

So highly of myself;

Placing my thoughts

On a pedestal.

Brought low

In the smallness

Of self.
