Ok, I was pissed-off the other day.
Have forgotten the reason why, was just pissed.
So, I went to a local Hamburg Pub at night.
Hoping to meet someone I could talk to.
Did not happen.
Had a couple of drinks.
Had some food.
Came the time I went for a piss.
On the toilet just above the piss pot I found some poetry written on the wall.
Ok. Not all of it was fine poetry in the strictest sense.
(And of course it was in German, as it’s a Hamburg Pub).
But there was one I liked. In English it goes like this:
A Hamster Wheel
From the Inside
Looks Like a Career Ladder
Don’t know exactly what the unknown poet was trying to tell
At that night.
At that place.
I found a certain wisdom in these words.
