If a sucker is born every minute,
then I have been reborn about 30 million times.
I am no old soul.
The universe gleefully spanks my rear end every 60 seconds
then diapers me fresh with an embroidered “Kick Me” nappy.
Doe eyed and cabbage brained, 
I see the best in people
even after they fool me twice.
Hope? Take my money!
I’ll slam down that damn hammer all day
just so I can see the ball hovering
inches away from the bell.
