This is an ode to me
I am just too good
When compared to thee.

For I am indeed so hot
My fire cannot be contained
Near me, sit you shall not.

Sever your self-worth
And behold my might
So we may dine on earth.

This is not your average sequence. What comes next? why?

A suggestion for the next line

I am better than all men.

It seems as though

Every line contains a word which is one letter different (either by replacement or subtraction) from the corresponding number of the line.

This is an ode (one) to me
I am just too (two) good
When compared to thee (three)

For (Four) I am indeed so hot
My fire (five) cannot be contained
Near me, sit (six) you shall not.

Sever (Seven) your self-worth
And behold my might (eight)
So we may dine (nine) on earth.

    $\begingroup$ This is exactly the reasoning I was going for. I was just expecting the number for the answer, but you went a step further. Take your checkmark! $\endgroup$ – Matt Apr 14 '16 at 13:50

    $\begingroup$ @hexomino - Did your next line involve the word "elven"? It's the only one I can think of... $\endgroup$ – Darrel Hoffman Apr 14 '16 at 14:50
