O Homem Indispensável


Some time when you're feeling important
Some time when you ego's in bloom
Some time when you take it for granted
You're the best qualified man in the room
Some time when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole
Just follow these simple instructions
And see how it humbles your soul:
Take a bucket and fill it with water
Dip your hand in it up to your wrist
Pull it out, and the hole that's remaining
Is a measure of how much you'll be missed.
You may splash all you like when you enter
You may stir up the water galore
But stop and you'll find in a moment
That it looks quite the same as before.
The moral of this quaint example
Is to do just the best that you can
Be proud of yourself, but remember
There is no indispensable man! ?
