disguised but dignified

jack the gnat
was hungry for
a shot at fame
and fortune
he saw the pie
that others had
and wanted
his fair portion
jack wore a cloak
hand made, bespoke,
to fit his modest frame
top-hat-1767535_960_720he wore a little top hat
he held a tiny cane
distinguished was
the way he felt
disguised but dignified
the gnat boys fumed
with jealousy
which fortified his pride
all the giddy
gnat girls swooned
each one of them
susceptible
but to the world
at large he was, alas,
still imperceptible
