Prance to Glory

To what aspires the small in the presence of their choir?
Nothing less than mere and minimal extraordinariness
therein in lies adoration besought by human ego
much more exhilarating than the kindness of compassion.
‘Tis small-minded to seek the grand show
where to be seen in motion is to be seen in imagined greatness 
The measure of which is shallow unheard clapping.
Such is the hopeful posture of the proud-minded
who would give it all to merely be seen as heroic.
