Poem: Low Expectations.

Expect to be disappointed…

Expectations should be deferred…


The love of

Friends and Family,

Lovers and Country,


Should be administered


A pinch of salt

And a mountain of cynicism.


Like an animal

In the wilderness,

Let self-preservation

Come first,


Lest you fall prey

To love’s games,


Not to be led astray


By your delicate feelings,

You sweet


Human being.
