Sappy Go Lucky

Most men are surrounded by sorrow
Except those that live for tomorrow
Though walking last mile
these optimists smile
Their rose-colored specs we should borrow

However, I am a bit leery
of dolts who are overly cheery
Be positive, yes
but life is a mess
And sometimes the world's downright dreary

This life can be good--I'm all for that
When bad, though--one can't just ignore that
Turn frown upside down
you'll look like a clown
Candide, you'll be stepped on as doormat
