Battles lost and battles won;
We’ll be bones before we’re done.
Two men shouted, “Get yourself a gun!”
Then turned and shot each other for fun.
No one said, “Life is easy.”
Except for me,
No one said, “Let’s be sleazy.”
Well, maybe someone,
Who reads out loud.
Whenever you think you got it all
Figured out. “I’m on the ball!”
Your masterpiece seems a childish scrawl,
When you see what’s painted on the wall.
