Keep a positive attitude even when the little things
manage to rear up and scream into your psyche.
(You let them.) These are small potatoes you
elevate to zeppelin status. Brain boring, bone
gnawing, growling – tiny things. How do they
make you growl, yip, and twitch?
Be good, and proud of it.
Let them take the path of most evil insistence and watch them march slowly and inexorably down into the inferno.
Hail the good, the diligent.
Cross to the other shore
while they run about
on this one.
