You would stop parading your self-importance in everyone’s face
If you, perhaps, took the time to realize;
You are no exception.
You may mark yourself as chosen
All because you drink from a lavish wine glass
But your inconsequential display really makes no difference
When you’re just another passenger quenching their thirst
To the cadaver making itself at home upstream.

The “You’re” in the title is silent.
No one is exempt.
