Ironically released on the day Trump is elected as the 45th President of America. You win, you lose ....



Oh, if ignorance is bliss then why do we seek knowledge?
Oh, where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise!
If ignorance is bliss, then why aren't people happy?
Oh, if ignorance is bliss, we should feel happy all the time, so ...

Why are you so sad?

['Anything you want you can have ... ANYTHING!'
'Everyone has everything ... SO NO-ONE WANTS ANYTHING!']

You win, you lose, you try again
You live, you love, you try again
You make your bed and lie in it ...
