No Indispensable Man

Sometime when you’re feeling important
Some morn when your ego’s in bloom
Some day when you feel for certain
You’re the best qualified in the room

Take a bucket and fill it with water
Plunge your arm in up to the wrist
Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining
Is the measure of how you’ll be missed

You can splash all you want when you enter
You can stir up the water galore
But stop – Take a look – And in no time
All will look just the same as before

The moral of this quaint example
Is just do the best that you can
Be proud of yourself but remember
THERE IS NO INDISPENSABLE MAN!
