    UNFAIR

    Passed over for promotion
    Though deserving the position
    “It’s just not fair!” I told myself
    And anyone who’d listen

    The beggar on the corner
    Who caused a traffic jam
    I thought “You bum, go get a job!”
    I knew it was a scam

    A mother with five ragged kids
    All blocked the grocery aisle
    She should’ve left the lot at home
    I frowned back at her smile

    That lady in the wheelchair
    Making everybody wait
    I’ve got somewhere I need to be
    And I’m already late

    I could never understand
    Why this world seemed to be
    One giant inconvenience
    Created just for me

    Soft-hearted and soft-headed
    Some think life is a song
    They told me “Count your blessings!”
    I said “That won’t take long!”

    Always one thing, then another
    Always one more bill to pay
    Always harder than it should be
    Always someone in my way

    ********

    It really is quite humbling
    When you learn you’ve been a fool
    Now the nurses change my diaper
    And my children wipe my drool

    Hard-headed and hard-hearted
    ‘Till a slap from God’s own Hand
    Life IS unfair . . . but not to me
    This at last I understand
Working...
