So say the human condition
That often comes off like a joke-book:
But then you take a hard look-
And see all the sorrow, misery, and pain-
And you're shook:
It all seems so insane!
Yet any way you look at it-
The state of the human condition is you too-
And you're hooked!
And there's no way to get out of it
Until you're dead-
So I've said.
And if you've got this far-
This is also something
That you can say that you've read.
