A Few Thoughts For The Day

A Few Thoughts For The Day 

For every silver lining,

there’s a dark cloud.

For every ray of sun,

a raindrop falls.

And that’s the way it’s been,

since the world it did begin.

So those smiley things don’t do much,

After all!

………………………………………………………………

A festering thought,

will infect the man,

as sure as a festering wound.

………………………………………………………………..

Do circus performers dream

of running off and joining

the “Rat Race”?

    Very true, the first two. I should think circus performers do, as they want to be better paid – like everyone else!
