The Road to Perdition


When fate keeps battering you all around
and strangling you in stress and worries,
catching you in traffic incidents
and driving you to nuts by faltering computers
infected by viruses and crashing all the time,
when harassment is all you get for being right
by all those who can’t see that they are wrong,
when ruin threatens you and catches up with you,
when your best friends go dying and the living break their ties,
when things are falling down and you have no escape
from devastation and annihilation and a nervous breakdown,
there is still one thing at least that you can do,
and that is simply getting out and getting drunk.
