Pride before Destruction

In the alphabet we see, letter “d” before the “p,”

So the listing of “destruction,” in a lexical deduction,

Which means put in perfect order, by an accurate word sorter,

We will find that it precedes, the word “pride,” oh, yes, indeed.

But in life’s real circumstances, when we gloat about advances,

We may learn to be more humble, if we come upon a stumble,

And begin to slip and fall, and feel small instead of tall.

Daily check up on your conscience to be low and unpretentious.
