    Failure


    Father used to call me a failure
    and when it came time for me
    to face the "big bad world"
    I looked upon myself as dumb, i.e.,
    less intelligent then the rest,
    so inevitably, in man's jungle,
    I became prone to fail and did.

    The tests we are given
    in man's social systems
    are designed for followers;
    their so-called teachings
    but instructions from yes-men.

    No need to feel unworthy
    if we fail these illusory tests:
    they can never measure a person's worth!
    What are they but a show
    of "brainial" capacity
    to store randomly acquired facts
    spouting reams of mis-information?

    What I have learned, I learned
    at the university of life:
    it may not contain degrees
    or cost exorbitant fees
    and the so-called smart may think it worthless
    but everyone must ultimately pass
    its un-written exams,
    for in real life
    there is no such thing as failure.
