Life's Raw Deal: a Satirical Poem

Updated on August 4, 2017

Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

We get our life for free, but then we have to pay for dying

and all in between are some hidden installments

since survival means a constant buying

unless we go suicidal to impose an annulment.

All kinds of smart asses tell us how to live

with their good intentions hard to tell apart

and whatever great we ever may achieve

is the result of someone else being smart.

Believe it or not, but we can't use our mind

the way we use our mouth, ass, and between

to call ourselves cool would be way too kind

for that option we don't have in our genes.

From parent to teacher to priest and at times a wife

everyone knows best and we just sheepishly follow

to them we owe everything including our naked life

since our own heads are a sort of hollow.

We only fancy to have a free will

for every step we make there was a coach

and that's why, my friends, life is a raw deal

but then again, we can always use a less mocking approach.
