It could be a failed art!

A sad face doesn't necessary mean
the person is depressed
Whatever the look it is hard guessed
A smiling face doesn't really mean
a person is happy at all
it could be a relieving moment of sun
that comes to call
after many times of fumbling the ball
or it maybe something funny
that makes a face sunny
The eyes could be tired of being runny

Smiling faces
show no traces
of the evil that lurks
especially when it comes to jerks
which offer hardly any perks
Try to get along with them
hardly anything works
No face mirrors the soul and heart
so don't even try to start
A persons actions can in part
However those who are slick
read the wrong way can put you
in a trick

Some fools can be like an open book
you can almost spot their bull from
taking your first look
If you do get a chance to look back
yesterday will be the attack
By the time you reach tomorrow
there maybe no antidote for your sorrow
other than escaping some of the horrow

The cowboys say
if you're bumped coming out of the saloon
don't focus on the full moon
You could end up in boothill soon
If you're blinded by the suns glare
still try to see your bumpers stare
cause life just isn't fair
The drunk may not give a hoot
he might pull his colt 45 and shoot
It's best to back off look to look
than to get shot in the back by a crook
