Caspar’s Patented Antidote (to this):
THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF LIFE:
Living on Earth is corrosive,
and everything you do has
a price that others will pay.
How long a minute can be
doesn’t stop us from ignoring
urgent issues year after year.
Birthdays are good for you;
one more excuse to drink
yourself nearer deaths door.
Happiness comes through doing stuff
not waiting for your life on a plate.
Ever notice that the people who you hate
are often much jollier
than natural justice should allow?
All of us go to our grave too soon.
If Wal-Mart is allowed to continue,
one day nothing will be free.
You are not the only person in the world,
so show some fucking consideration.
Admit your mistakes,
especially to yourself.
Don’t cry at unfairness;
rage at absurdity.
We could learn a lot from crayons:
some are sharp, some are pretty,
some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors….but
they all taste of wax.
A truly happy person is one who is
ignoring all the ugliness in the world.
Have an ordinary day, and
know that every day will be like this one,
so don’t live in your dreams,
it’s time to wake up to real life.
Please keep this message
to yourself…. contact your mates
but use your own words to express how YOU feel,
don’t just mindlessly reguritate the platitudes of others.
