equal but opposite destinations

there are two types of parents
those who raise their kids same as they were raised
and those who give their kids everything they didn’t get

there are two types of kids
those who copy what their parents do
and those who hate what their parents do

there are two types of employees
those who work for a paycheck
and those who work for a chance to learn

there are two types of employers
those who think people are machines
and those who give long coffee breaks

oh i suppose i could go on
definitions simplified
or complicated
one of the two

for some reason it helps us
to see only two prongs
in our road-forks

to envision life
at right angles
right angles
left angles
cross-eyed contortions

you know there’s only two types of human beings:
those that lick melting ice cream off a cone
and those who wrap the cone in a napkin

life is full of decisions
gave everything
got nothing in return
but found out i was better off
counting popsicle sticks

i know i look at life too much
so do you!
so do each of us
when i lived life i wasn’t analyzing it

there are only two types of losers
those who could win and don’t try
and those who try but can’t win
