An amusing bit of annoyance (haiku chain)

You ever notice
Folks love to believe the worst
Rather than the best?

Oh! So eagerly,
That even bizarre schisms
Will be overlooked

History, forgot
Experience, set aside
In favor of it

The things one can do
Knowing this to be the case
Sometimes seem unreal

From the mud, I laugh;
happy to be caked with it,
so long as you’re not.

Know the hardest part?
keeping the ego in check;
no reveal allowed.

Ah well, no matter;
in all directions, there’s growth,
each as was needed

What really matters,
is retrieved from the corner,
set into the light.

Of course, I cheated,
just now and through these verses;
hmm, did I really?
