454. Needless to repeat

In my family
There are only three members:
My father, my mother and I.
Father thinks and says
He is great,
Which he actually is.
Mother feels and says
She is good,
Which she obviously is.
And I just know and declare
I am perfect,
Absolutely perfect.
Needless to repeat,
Since everyone knows it.
