So hard your nose bleeds,
And u swear you won’t do it again?
You pick yourself up.
You dust yourself off.
And rev up the ole’ flame within.
You’ve grabbed no new tools,
You’re going faster than before,
And you’re head is straight up your ass.
Not a glamorous sight,
But appearance aside…
You’ve learned to fail with class!
The same brick wall.
The same barricade.
Will sanity ever win?
Perhaps you’ll bust it down,
Or maybe go around,
Or simply repeat… ad infinitum.
