Have a tiny tidbit of despair,
A little taste of what most must consume,
Letting go the blessings you assume,
Letting go the myth that life is fair.
Oh, savor it, that bitter, bitty bite,
Worthy of your easy empathy!
Endure this brutal world vicariously,
Even for a moment, that you might
Not be so thoroughly ignorant of life.
