The Lark

Paris, 1987
Better days 
Are up ahead
'Round the corner
'Round the Bend

We've been led
To believe
With our hard work
We shall receive

The day is old
The corners dark
We've been deceived
T'was just a lark

Ah yes, “The best laid plans of mice and men”.

We are told to be an upstanding citizen, study hard at school, work hard at work and like mana from heaven all good things are bestowed upon on ye.

Until it isn’t.

I don’t think I would have done life any different – but I would have asked for the small print up front.
