Sometimes You Just Fuck Up

Sometimes you fuck up.
You just do.
It happens.

You can’t linger on it.
You shouldn’t shoulder it or
dwell upon it
for too long
unless of course
you have caused the loss of
innocent lives or
something of that magnitude.

Just learn what you can from it
and try not to do it again
because there is a very thin line
between a hero and a fool.

I make mistakes
every day
mostly small ones

I pour myself a bowl of dog food
water the cats instead of the plants
then realize that I own neither
become extremely confused
when faced with doorways and
pretty brunettes.

Nothing intentional or malicious
I would like to think that
I’m way beyond that (kill you).

But if nothing fucked up
there would be no newspapers
and everyone would become
profoundly insane
because of it.

If everything were to go seamlessly
as planned
all the time
it would eventually cause
great damage to the psyche.

Fucking up is essential to humanity
everyone must do their part
I hope that you’re doing yours

because I most certainly am doing mine
