The Lucky Ones

Blessed be the weak,
For they will not have to live in a post-nuclear world;
Blessed be the meek,
For they will inherit the Earth...
When the strong have finished with it;
Blessed be the low,
For they will never have to fall;
Blessed be the ignorant,
For they will never know how they have been deceived;
Blessed be the man who expects nothing,
For he and he alone will never be disappointed.
