Poem: Low Expectations.

Expect to be disappointed…

Expectations should be deferred…

_____________________

The love of

Friends and Family,

Lovers and Country,

_____________________

Should be administered

With

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,

Pray

Not to be led astray

_____________________

By your delicate feelings,

You sweet

Weak

Human being.
