Walking through the forest, I come across a broken bird's egg
an empty eggshell, filled with dirt.
It proclaims itself a mighty continent of the land.
I laugh at it, and move on

Walking through the forest, I come across another broken bird's egg
an empty eggshell, filled with twigs.
It proclaims itself a majestic tree of the wood.
I laugh at it, and move on

Walking through the forest, I come upon another broken bird's egg
an empty eggshell, filled with rainwater.
It proclaims itself a vast and powerful ocean.
I laugh at it, and move on.

Walking through the forest, I find a fourth egg
containing a single thought.
It proclaims itself a genius, with knowledge of all the workings of the world.
I laugh at it, and move on.

Walking through the forest, and empty eggshell sits upon my shoulders.
Containing but an ego, it thinks itself a god.
Blind to it's foolishness, it moves on.
I move on.
Moral of the story: just because you know a little about something, does not make you a master of said field.

I try to advise people about things I'm actually not very knowledgeable in, and end up feeling like a fool and speaking over those who can actually help.
I guess I just try too hard sometimes, but I should really learn to keep my mouth shut when my help isn't asked for.

It's mostly the clever symbolism that helps. ^^ My poem is about the corrupt American society we live in nowadays (I listen to a lot of protest songs XD) but I didn't want to make it sound too preachy.
