Bravery is Overrated

Don't be too brave,
It might save,
you,
from you.

I'll tell you a story...


One day I woke up,
in a pile of shit,
literally,
but I wasn't surprised
not even a bit.

Fortunately, my home was away few miles,
people I was passing by, heh,
I've never seen so much smiles,
around me,
They were wondering; what was I doing?
what happened to me?

Some of them avoided me,
some of them yelled,
some of them smelled!?
weird ha,
one of them got creative, and took a hose,
his laugh suddenly rose,
when he let the water overflow,
I was overrun,
It was a real show.

A guess they were happy,
that even their life wasn't so crappy.
They finally found,
somebody even more messed up than them,
a black lamb.
For some reason, that made me satisfied,
I had no choice anyway,
I had nowhere to hide.


But you remember I said,
I wasn't surprised,
I did not lied,
You see, yesterday I accidentally met,
a pack of thugs,
so conveniently instead of hugs,
one pulled a knife,
He made me afraid for my life,
so I got pissed, I went for a hit,
I missed, 
so they said to me,
"oh man, you're gonna wake up in a pile of ..."

That is it
I got home,
I took a shower,
and I went to sleep,
Eventful way,
to start and finish a day,
I would say.
Would you?
