The Infernal Optimist

The Infernal Optimist

Alfred Lord Tension 17 Jul 2017 12:34 pm said..

With no wish to provoke a schism
today I speak for optimism.
Not for me the doom and gloom.
As I sit in my sunlit room
my joyful heart is soaring light.
No dark thoughts harangue or blight
my summer dreams of winter bliss.
My happy reasoning goes like this.
Every new season brings surprises,
which come in many strange new guises.
A giant Ackerman brings fresh intrigue
having topped his current league.
Unknown signings still to come
adding hope to the exciting hum.
So I wait expectant, unable to resist
playing the infernal optimist.

Great work ALT - I hope you're proved right and can commemorate many famous victories in the coming season.
Failure is not an option; it comes bundled with the software.

Initially I thought that there was no need to get personal Alf...

Here's for optimism.

You are such an essential part of any Gloucester season ALT (along with CTRL and DEL).
1Thes.5 [14] Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feeble-minded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.

Dear Oxford Glaws or may I call you Ox?

My friends CTRL and DEL
Work with me, as you know well.
When our world will not respond
And we stare into the great beyond
with little to relieve our pain,
ALT CTRL DEL helps us start again.
