Making It and The Fall
“If you’re so smart, why ain’t ya rich?”
Why do we mock those who can’t make it in life?
And by that, I mean, make it in the life in this world we’ve created,
that’s actually anti-life, anti-love, and anti-beauty?
Probably because, we all know, deep inside,
that if the game of Shoots and Ladders is abandoned,
we’ll be really pissed that we spent so much time propping it up,
getting ripped off and screwed over,
that we’ll feel really STUPID when we realize we were played
and that we played along with all of this.
So we pass that pain along and down.
Makes it easier to stomach
the daily pint
of pure petroleum-based rot-gut
MAKING IT AND THE FALL.
