Great Poem, Very Short

Self-pity

I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.

    Here's a nice short poem that's meant a lot to me over the years--

    I wish I loved the Human Race;
    I wish I loved its silly face;
    I wish I liked the way it walks;
    I wish I liked the way it talks;
    And when I’m introduced to one,
    I wish I thought "What Jolly Fun!"

    HA! I love that, Tony. Let's have a hot toddy to celebrate it.
