The Good Outweighs the Bad Fifty-Fifty

The crypt door is about to close upon my numb yet tingling toes while the medical bills continue to stack compounding interest on a chronic attack as the doctor shakes his head in disbelief and the loved ones do all they can to hide their grief the tomb is quiet with time to think siphoned by new media's boundless ink we suffer and voice our genuine despair for whom we don't know, nor do we care but yearn for life like a wonder drug bulging on the skin like a greedy bed bug life feeds off life and ends in death daring each of us to hold our breath while the cost of living sings with glee there ain't no such thing in the world as free so we come and then we go leaving others to reap and sew the same conundrum we all must face that nothing lasts in this holy place except this notion that pushes us on in spite of odds it may all be gone to tighten our belts and remain thrifty and hope the good outweighs the bad fifty-fifty.
