Dogged By Bad Luck

Talk about effort;
What you put in
Is what you get out
Talk about faith;
The good Lord will provide
You just sit there and expect it
Talk about being strong;
Have a positive attitude
Assertive mindset
But talk about bad luck;
The room clears
No-one understands
Or relates
"You're lazy."
"You're not trying hard enough."
What if it doesn't matter
How much effort you put in,
How much faith you have,
How positive you are?
Move a mountain once,
And the next time you'll reconsider
Especially if it amounts to nothing
Or just another obstacle,
Or challenge,
Slapped in the face
With a titan's dick
Talk about effort when
you're dogged by bad luck
