ever the optimist

couldn’t get behind
the gripes the groans the grind
of downward spiral thinking
drowning in your drinking
why me why now why here why
i’d rather laugh than cry
rather live than die
rather do than nothing
revel, rabble rouse
cajole, console, consort, carouse
raise up the roof
and bring down the house
no jumping off bridges
no falling on swords
happiness is
its own reward
ever the optimist
