There once was a good doughnut
Delectable confection of sugars and sweets
Doused in honey, dusted with nuts
Teeth have never had such a treat indeed.
Then enter two men, aboard a boat, no less
Arguing, they miss the good ol' doughnut at first
But, "Aha!" One of these two in time express
"Look at that - that hole on that piece!"
"What hole?" The other of the two cries,
"That hole!" The other retorts, inordinately annoyed
Confused, the other looks and looks and sighs
Oh, a hole at the middle - all that the other holds.
And thus, twixt optimists and pessimists
The difference is droll
The optimist sees the doughnuts
The pessimists see the hole
And the realist?
Oi, he sees the doughnut
And opts for a burger instead !!
