nothing really matters
in your daily living
so playing mean
and being all hard-scrabble
about it is the world's M.O.
but if you can keep sweet
about it and and not let
the others take too big
a bite of you then maybe...just maybe...
you won't deceive yourself
with a fantasy of blessings beyond
what you've gotten for yourself...
you could short-change yourself
but never short-change the cosmos....
