Hope in times of Peril. What is Hope?

Hope is not the thing with feathers
That comes home to roost
When you need it the most.

Hope is an ugly thing
With teeth and claws and
Patchy fur that's seen some of the worst crap

It's what thrives in the discards
And survives in the ugliest parts of our world,
Able to find a way to go on
When nothing else can even find a way in.

It's the gritty, nasty little carrier of such diseases as
Optimism, persistence,
Perseverance, and joy,
Transmissible as it drags its tail across your path
Bites you in the behind.

Hope is not some delicate, beautiful bird, my dear.
It's a lowly little sewer rat
That snorts pesticides like they were
Lines of powder and still
Shows up on time to work the next day
Looking no worse for wear.

Hope is not a bird, my dear, it's a sewer rat.

Get a life :woody: I mean, an eternal one. :angel:
