The h2g2 Poem: A Failure

A Failure

I've found that failure wears a friendly face

It's comforting to amble with the throng

Who seem contented to avoid disgrace.

I've collected failures. There's a certain grace

In accepting that your talent isn't strong.

I've found that failure wears a friendly face.

Housework's doomed to fail. I expect my place

To fill with junk which doesn't quite belong,

But untidy houses are no disgrace.

Driving proved an art of speed and space

I never mastered, though I ground along.

I've found that failure wears a friendly face.

As I moved, I lost my cherished trace

Of friends I cared for, but it would be wrong

To think that losing them was my disgrace.

And if I caused the heartbreak in your face

I don't believe my love could be more strong.

I've found that failure wears a friendly face

But losing you would be my real disgrace.
