Ups and Downs

There is nothing in the world
quite like the thing
called my life.
There are many times when
I think that nothing is
ever going to get
any better,
and there are some times that I
wish it would never get worse.
But there are always
ups and downs
and there is no way
to get around them.
Life is a just one big brick wall
with a tunnel painted on it,
like in the Wild E. Coyote cartoons.
And just like Wild E. Coyote, we will
never catch our Roadrunner
unless we work our asses
off everyday.
But that never will happen,
in the slob society that we have become.
There is no one in this country
with the will to work,
the will to love,
the will to live
anymore.
