The Simple Truth


“My oh my,” said the spider to the fly,

“Look who’s in my web, you sweet delicious.”

“I sit and quake,” cried mouse to rattlesnake,

“For I know you to be very cold and vicious.”

Such is the world we’re living in,

One moment, you might win…

The next could find you sleeping with the fishes.

Though the thought may cause despair,

It is neither here nor there.


Is only found in wishes.
