I came across this poem online, but without crediting the author; so I went in search, found, and give them the credit they deserve for a clever piece!
Worst Day Ever?
By Chanie Gorkin
Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don’t try to convince me that
There’s something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.
And it’s not true that
It’s all in the mind and heart
True happiness can be obtained
Only if one’s surroundings are good.
It’s not true that good exists
I’m sure you can agree that
It’s all beyond my control.
And you’ll never in a million years hear me say that
Today was a good day.
Now read it from bottom to top, the other way,
And see what I really feel about my day.
