To Mr. Perfect who has no flaws
And is steady tossing stones at others’ walls,
Does not realize he is not perfect at all.
To Mr. Perfect who can do no wrong
And is always singing the same old song
Of “woe is me” and “you should do”;
Believes he is different from me and you,
But one day he will see
He is not perfect at all.
To Mr. Perfect who judges most,
Stands up to make a toast
To himself in normal fashion
And says with such passion
That “perfection is the only quality
Bestowed upon him solely”.
Mr. Perfect will soon find out
That perfection is not for man
And that flaws are a part of God’s plan;
So that we will know humility
And be able to take responsibility
For all our actions, evil or kind.
Mr. Perfect is not perfect at all.
One day those walls will fall,
Due to all the stones he’s cast
Trying to make everyone else
Take responsibility for their acts.
