On Effort

Effort is not attractive.
It is admirable but not attractive.

Hard work is generally unattractive,
(Hostagists are initially unattractive;)
Effort can save grace,
but not with much grace.

‘At least you tried’ is all that it gets.

A tryhard gets the job done.
Says my critic inside me.
And he’s not wrong.
He’s a perfectionist.

Requires effort, of course.

What’s ironic,
(What isn’t these days?)
Is that it’s supposed to be easy.
