Maintenance Man Wisdom

The maintenance man at our school, whom I have mentioned before, must be some sort of hidden scholar or maybe he is a wise man that is just here as a disguise because he has found the true meaning to life. Anyway... He saw this quote hanging up in my room...
The chief mark of counterfeit holiness is its lack of humility.
Andrew Murray


In response, he gave me this poem:

Dilemma
by David Budbill

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?


Where does this guy come from?!?
