You always were so selfish
Scheming for your own ends
I remember that you told me
After two years dump your friends

You thought you knew the way
You thought you had it all
History has shown
You dropped the ball

You sprout your views like vomit
Everywhere you go
There’s no end to your gift
Of making endless foes

Don’t ever want to meet you
Now or when I’m dead
Everything you touch turns
Magically to lead

Father used to call you
The little “mee too” bitch
Mother used to call you
The silly green eyed witch

Brother called on over
With some bottled wine (vino)
You hung out the usual
“You’re not welcome” sign

Sibling rivalry
You were never in the race
You just followed us
Coming in last place

Tindall Family Motto

The Tindall family motto is “Nosce te ipsum” which is the Latin translation of the ancient Greek aphorism γνώθι σεαυτόν, meaning “Know thyself”. It was inscribed above the entrance to the Temple of Apollo at Delphi.

Plato employs the maxim 'Know Thyself' extensively by having the character of Socrates use it to motivate his dialogues.Plato makes it clear that Socrates is referring to a long-established wisdom. Benjamin Jowett's index to his translation of the Dialogues of Plato lists six dialogues which discuss or explore the saying of Delphi: 'know thyself.' These dialogues (and the Stephanus numbers indexing the pages where these discussions begin) are Charmides (164D), Protagoras (343B), Phaedrus (229E), Philebus (48C), Laws (II.923A), I Alcibiades (124A, 129A, 132C).
