The Humors of Failure

OK, I’ve taken up Will’s challenge! This is meant to have a feeling of futility, like a bunch of people marching purposefully along only to find out they’re on a dead-end street.

Contentment is failure!

The title gets a 100% of course! (How much % left for the tune in these conditions i wonder!)
A monstruous cross between Mná na hÉireann, the Beatles’ And I Love Her and Contentment is Wealth!
Humour’s right but Failure is unhealthy!

Or , the Rotten Reel …the Wasted Waltz…the Heinous Hornpipe …the Slippery Slide / slip jig ! …
