Cheer up Chum!Mature

They expected the grin, and they got it.

I didn't expect any survival guides on the subject.

I just hope I can write one for the next man or woman:

'The struggle is the struggle is the struggle.'

Anything more suggests hope.

Hope exists, but it's unfair to start suggesting it to people.

I wouldn't do that to you.

Christ! How they do it me though!

Hope and time; they are vultures.

Ripping the flesh from the extremes

Leaving the dull, prolonged ache.

Waiting and hoping that it stops.

There is a way chum,

But as I said:

It is unfair,

For me to suggest hope.

The End
