Don't Stress, It Isn't Chess!

The cat has noticed for a long time how humans are no longer in their prime. Pathetic is now high on the bar. Hell, on top of the the bar is par. Excellent, great, etc, are no longer there. Mediocrity is all it takes at any lair.

Why try and do?
Instead sit and stare.
No one is after you.
No reason to beware.

Mediocre is tops.
There is no stress.
If something flops,
Wash your hands of the mess.

No need to own up to it.
Let it float into the sea.
Wade through the shit,
And just let it be.

Talent is of no need.
Let that go by the way side.
Show your ass on a blog feed,
And in that you can take pride.

Mediocrity is the best.
Why try any more?
I passed the test.
Excellent is only lore.

Slack off and show up late.
Wear nothing to Wal-Mart.
That is the mediocre fate,
Lots of useless crap in your cart.

Made in China is the way.
Who wants to work anyway?
Sit and watch a display.
With idiots at play.

Celebrity means fool.
Watch as they drool.
That is so cool.
Mediocrity will rule.

Have to know.
Have to see.
No lawn to mow.
After all I'm free.

Mediocrity is tops.
Excellent is a myth,
Watch ball drops,
Mediocrity is fun to be with.

Damn humans do nothing much anymore. Complacent as can be at their shore. Idiocracy is coming due. Things are now so much stupider in view. The cat just likes to prove it here and there. I think I can do that at my lair. To mediocrity I just pass gas from my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  3. Yep, my motto is "it's good enough". No need to strive for perfection if it's good enough.

  6. "Don't Stress, It Isn't Chess!"

    Contributory to all the stress

    Bad joke, don't go cussing
    Mediocrity sits on it's fanny
    Let's the government fill every cranny
    Too bad all you bloke
    Now the country goes broke

    1. lol poor Greeks
      Up shit creeks
      If many stopped passing gas
      And got off their ass
      Or stayed on their ass and tried online stuff
      They could have enough

      Delete
    2. Actually right now a Greek person couldn't earn money online as that requires a bank account and access to said bank account. But I do know what you mean. A lot of wild spending and not a care of the consequences is what got them into this mess.

    3. haha that is true
      As not even paypal will touch their zoo
      Got themselves into a mess
      With always wanting more not less

  12. There's too much praise for things that aren't praise worthy. All a person has to do now a days to earn praise is treat their life like a reality show. Tweet what you're eating, instagram a picture of it and post it on Facebook. Then people will tell you how AWESOME it is and give you loads of LIKES. This is the kind of shite that promotes mediocrity. We used to actually have to excel at something to be noticed.

    The cream no longer rises to the top Cat. It's buried beneath a sea of mediocrity.

    1. Yep, stupid stupid crap

      The mediocre sure do rule
      And hmmm sadly I may add to that
      With a new project at my mat
      But could get me some dough
      And I'm not lazy...so lol

      Delete
    2. You're definitely not lazy Cat. One of the hardest working young men I've ever come across.

      Hope you do get some cash from your new project. Loads and loads and loads of it!

    3. Well if it makes 1% of facebook's dough
      I'll be rich and away I'll go
      I'll still write and blog
      But everything else can get lost in a fog
      Slow going though

  13. ha! I almost 100% agree with this as we do seem to be rewarding minimal effort more and more in our world. HOWEVER, there is still such a high value on being busy, busy, busy and not enjoying life- so sometimes I think it could stand to be taken down a notch :)

  14. Yep it does seem like we are settling for less

  29. My dad always said, "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well." He demanded my best and usually got it. When you strive for excellence, people don't like it. They call you an "Over Achiever." I'll just stick with my over achieving ways. At least I can be proud of what I have accomplished so far. Not stopping yet either! Have a good one!
