Negative Option Living

Positives cost money,
But negatives are free,
Leading to a funny
Way to have society:

When you earn a living,
All your income triggers tax;
Cut the fees you're giving,
And your savings can relax.

When you're feeling healthy
Or in any manner gifted,
You'd better keep it stealthy;
Suffer and such rules are lifted.

So, it seems, successes,
Like a ball and chain, are dragging;
Failures' great excesses,
Though, allow for too much bragging.

'Tis thus that each example
That our culture lets us give
Is how to not be ample
But with negatives to live.
