Recipe for Humanity
Multiple pounds of matter,
Carefully mixed with a few spoons of intelligence.
A pinch of optimism, followed by several cups of misery.
(Doesn't matter which is added first- outcome is still the same.)
One teaspoon of innocence and half a pint of insanity.
Beat well with the brutal spoon that is Life.
Empty into a bottomless container of despair,
making sure that none spills over the edge-
wouldn't want anyone to see that, do we?
Bake for as long as you want until you feel like it has taken the brunt of existence.
Serve with a ladle of piping hot submission.
Best eaten cold.
