An elephant on sandy feet

I know a man who looks mighty,
Like a giant;
He stands tall like a giant;
He vociferates like a giant;
And everybody expects him to act
Like a giant;
For this will make them stand tall;
But what do we see?
A man who thinks like a dwarf;
And acts like a lilliputian;
He is huge
But an elephant on sandy feet;
Soon he’ll come down
Crumbling like a huge building
In a heap;
The fall will resound in all the earth;
And what a mighty fall that will be!
