The art of being serious

(for Julian vS.)

When schoolwork sucks and games get boring
And friends just bug you with their snoring;

When mothers criticize your habits,
Fathers buy you fluffy rabbits (???);

When holidays are filled with rain
And all the world has gone insane;

When girlfriends turn into a mess
That makes your head just ache with stress;

When people try to bring you strife -
Just grin, and say, “Oh, get a life!”

When crappy circumstances linger,
Laugh, and just give fate the finger!

The only way to stop a tumour
Is not to lose your sense of humour!
