You're pretty much among most,
And when it's about something you hold dear,
You've met the most unsung ghost,
That fills your life with the most meaning,
Grounded in the extreme despair,
That what you love might actually not,
Even be there.
But that is just what life teaches you,
If you refuse to follow the path,
Recommended by 9 out of 10 humans,
Who would prefer a good laugh.
And it's alright,
Just don't get all caught up in deceit,
It's really about knowing what you know,
Which wouldn't satisfy a parakeet.
