the lost cause

by Sashi Tandon



his ex-father-in-law said 

“you gotta get on 

with life, mate”.  

the lost cause 

is a liar and a bastard

and a cheater.  

he’s probably better off by himself.  he lost cause  

isn’t a naturally happy person – he’s a barrage 

of ails and laments.  

to be honest,  

he’s not a very nice man 

to be  


that’s just the way he is.
