Failure of Success

Michael Jackson teaches us
about the failure of success.
Excess is rarely worth the fuss
we make about it. Less
is more, but we don't learn this till
we've reached our goals and find that life
has moved the posts. We can fulfill
ambitions best helped by a wife,
if we are fortunate enough
to have one, or a husband, should
we be a woman. Life is tough--
not more or less like Hollywood.

Inspired by Michael Jackson's death and Bob Woodward's comment on ABC on July 12, 2009, explaining that Michael Jacksson's life teaches about the failure of success.
