Is it Wisdom or Just My Wisdom 7.5

(i) TRY
 
They say: If at first you donít exceed, try, try, again
There are many examples of why and when  
This is not always wise

Russian roulette
 
Sky Diving
 
Suicide
 
Sex with a rabid wolverine
 
Hitting yourself on the head with a meat mallet
 
Crossing a motorway blindfolded
Just using the force
 
Catching lightning by carrying a long metal pole
In the air during a storm
 
Walking up to a hungry polar bear  
And challenging him to a game of chess
 
Trying to get me to go away
 
 
(ii) Trails
 
Contemplating death
In the final analysis  
There is you alone,  
A god that doesnít exist  
Worms, spiders and bugs
And of course maggots
Morbid but factual
Sad but true
Happy trails
 
 
(iii) Shiny happy people
 
Never trust happy looking people
You never know if it is genuine
They could be laughing internally
About you and you strange attire
They could have gas or gout
They could have the tears of a clown
They may know something you donít
They may not be happy maybe smug
Whatever they are I donít trust them
I enjoy the misery I afford myself
And I am not fuckin annoying
 
 
(iv) At Least I Tried
 
I tried being happy once
But fate or god had other ideas
Blessed are the pessimistic
For they will know less disappointment
An enjoy the little victories much more
 
(v) Fags
 
'If God
Really  
Hates  
Fags,  
Why cant  
He just  
Stop  
Smoking
Them'
 
Authors note: In the UK the term fags means cigarettes
 
 
(vi) Blessed (the Book of Macleod 2:14)

'Blessed are the disappointed  
For they should have expected  
Nothing but disappointment  
Then they wouldn't feel so disappointed  
That they needed blessed  
In the first place'
 
(vii) Happiness
 
Happiness is owned  
By the rich
And the sudo
Enlightened
Our misery
Is a reminder
To them
Not to
Fuck up
