Suck It Up Man, and Put On a Smile.


Below is an adaptation of something I was reading this morning.  Something in it struck a chord with me.

 

Suck it up man, and put on a smile.

King of your kingdom, that’s what you are.

Your hours are long, and your house is a wreck, but you’ve reached the top.

Suck it up man, and put on a smile.

Your wife she is pretty, and your children they are quick, the product your selling is a smashing hit.

Ignore that darkness in the corner, creeping in, ignore that deep feeling that makes you sick.

Suck it up man, and put on a smile.

You wake every morning, and you lay down every night.  What else is there to do with your life?

Take this pill, drink that drink, but not too much or you’ll turn pink.

Suck it up man, and put on a smile.

One day you will die, but let’s not dwell on that now.

One day your children will not be around.

One day the product will crash through the floor.

One day your wife won’t be pretty anymore.

Suck it up man and put on a smile.

Eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.

That’s what the enemy whispers, and I am foolish to believe it.

Suck it up man, and put on a smile.
