By: Joe Attanasio

Some people live with a dread

That is firmly stuck in their head

A worry of impending doom

Every day, the threat of gloom

Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong

Fills them like a haunting song

Their life is clouded by worry

Their future all blurry

For every good thing, there is two bad

This thought the have always had

When anything bad happens at all

They wait for the other shoe to fall

If they get even a half good day

Sure as hell, they are going to pay

The night is darkest just before dawn

And daybreak is forever gone

They never let themselves be happy

Their life is spent feeling crappy

Hope is not a word they know

Their life is filled with woe

They live their life so defeated

Of happiness they have been cheated

Happy thoughts they want to ditch

Because payback is a bitch!
