Humble About Being Famous

Do you ever test your humility? How deep are its roots? How wide are its walls?  This poem got me thinking about the authenticity of my humility:

I want to be
famous
so I can be
humble
about being
famous.

What good is my
humility
when I am
stuck
in this
obscurity?

-“Dilemma” by David Budbill, cited in Good Poems by Garrison Keillor
