Unbridled Vanity

Unbridled Vanity

I flatter your unbridled vanity.
I’m helping you advance, I’m sure, to Hell.
Your ears hear, but your heart declines to see
I flatter. Your unbridled vanity
Insists that every smiling word from me
Is justified. I do not wish you well.
I flatter your unbridled vanity.
I’m helping you advance, I’m sure, to Hell.

–Tom Riley
