Why hoping on tomorrow
when tomorrow will never come?
Why say “it will be better”
when it’s not even good at all?
Why do you talk of the future
when you have nothing to show for now?
Why never relenting, saying “the patient dog eats the fattest bone”
while others join thin bones to make it fat?
Oh! You have not heard?
The patient dog dies of hunger!
