life

I have no firm foundations
on which to build a life
merely observations
of a world that’s full of strife
should I approach each juncture
striving to be fair
or simply emulate those
who patently don’t care
I’ve looked for a philosophy
something I can embrace
but all I’ve found is sophistry
with a smile upon it’s face

  1. To quote frum teh Moovie Harvey wit James Stuart:
    “Years ago my mother used to say to me, she’d say, “In this world, Elwood, you must be” – she always called me Elwood – “In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.” Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me. “
