At Your Own Risk

Blessed are the brave,
            for their skulls shall be crushed
Blessed are the merciful,
            for they shall be tortured
Blessed are the idealistic,
            they shall despair
Blessed are the generous,
            their bones shall be picked clean
Blessed are the achievers,
            they shall exchange achievement for life
Blessed are the accepting,
            they shall be buried under a mausoleum of woe


Eleanor  Ross Taylor
