The Goal – (Weekly Decima Prompt #64)
Before you start to cheer and clap
Check you have not dropped the ball …
Pride often comes before a fall.

Don’t get caught into that trap.
Hide that smirk you wish to express
Enjoy moments of true success …
Receive adulation with grace.
Learn with quiet charm to embrace
Praise of others and acquiesce.
