whomever said adversity brings out the best
in you didn’t make clear it was an adumbrate
homily demurring classically situational angst;
adversity is great when it’s plain who’s for or
against – & to recognise it means a chance to
avoid inevitable end-game ambits impasse of
squalid character assassination, surely that’s
enough to leave you gasping – sordid endings

appraising dead debate less vanquished or
victor – no, it’s not obsessive winning to get
you pleased, it’s about your personality; and
the crock of shit in commutation is – there’s
invariably and unquestionably always proof
it was someone else’s ridiculous idea!
