The Mortal Coil Shuffle

It’s a guerilla war
this being glad
with the world conspiring
to make us sad

the big picture
is bound to depress you
it’s going to weigh you
down unless you
focus on the things
that bless you
and people who don’t mind
what a mess you
are (I know I are)

no one has ever
won this race
but you can run it
with a little grace
if you learn to laugh
in the devil’s face
and watch out for the thorns
