high horse definition. To be on one's “high horse” is to be disdainful or conceited: “Sally got tired of Peter's snobbery and finally told him to get off his high horse.” The American Heritage® New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, Third Edition. Copyright © 2005 by Houghton Mifflin Company.

I really liked this  poem  so thought I'd share.... It's a pity some among us don't play by the same set of rules they expect everyone else to play by... 


Get Off Your High Horse

by Lioness   Dec 26, 2011

Your ignorance
and pretentious thoughts
hide the reality that you are nothing
but a speck of dirt

A meaningless matter of smaller proportion
with an egotistic mind-set
of a larger scale -
to which I am grateful that I
no longer associate myself with

Oh how I would love for
your chauvinistic elements - 
to be paraded so that your 
moulded imperfections 
are exposed

Lead by a horse - 
you're reaching for the summit
of Mount Everest

for now...

You can kiss my gluteus maximus

Because it's time
to step down from Seabiscuit
and face the undoubted truth

That you
are no longer wanted

or loved by me
