Oh the Humility

I’m the flagship store.
I’m the grand debut.
I’m the gasps, the clicks,
the points, the stares.
Did you know that I’m HQ?

I’m the reason for confetti.
The cheers, the “hip hip hoorays!”
I am the Honoree,
the Mother-ship,
the encore at the ballet.

I’m the ceremony.
The Laureate.
I take the cake.
In this little thing called life
did you know I raise the stakes?
