Live With It

cluster fucks
and middle management

ubiquitous throughout history

so, why are we so surprised
(then indignant)
when things go wrong

most of us strive and rise
to a level of incompentency ourselves
probably causing as much
of the crap as we recieve

yet, our idignation persists
when anything interrupts our personal plans

I'm at a point in my life
where I am more surprised
when things go right


Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


thanks for the attestation.
I always hope that some can relate to what I write
It's like a sanity check..that I haven't totally lost my mind

appreciate your thoughts,


author comment

to the point. No hidden meanings here! You would be amazed at how few people know what SNAFU stands for, O guiding light of our existences. nice irony.

I would consider a different title...poem is about you, living with it , not us who have to learn to live with it.

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance
