Life’s dirty tricks

Life has many dirty tricks;
Or what do we call them
If not life’s dirty tricks?
Life will lift you high up
In the sky,
And let loose its grip on you
And you come crashing down;
What do you call this
If not a dirty trick?
Look at the gutters!
They are all packed full;
And these same ones glittered
And sparked yesterday;
What went wrong along the line?
High up today,
Far down in the gutter tomorrow;
That is the life I see everyday;
Truly, life has its dirty tricks;
Beware that life does not play
Its dirty tricks on you!
