You’re Being a Little Too Positive | A Poem by G.S. Katz

Could you be a bit more negative
Success is only a few steps away from failure
Failure you can count on
It’s the cocoon of despair

Working like a dog is nice
Because you got the big house
But your wife is cheating on you with with the bed bug guy
Your pink golf shirt has a stain you can’t see

Translation: Stay humble
Don’t fall for the hype
All that glitters is fake
Wear more black
