Isn't it funny?

It's funny how the good guy always wins,
And how the beautiful girl gets the best man,
And how the underdog defeats the professional,
And how every story has a happy ending and a moral,
And how the poorly treated girls get rewarded,
But in life,
The good guys often lose because they are too noble,
And how the beautiful girls get the jerks,
And how the underdogs are often not good enough,
And how not everyone has a happy ending,
And not every badly beaten girl is rewarded in the end,

Isn't that funny how we were scolded for fighting when we were younger,
But people get away with murder everyday?

Isn't it silly that we were taught to work as a team,
And we are a world divided?

Isn't it trivial that we were taught to do the right thing,
And yet there are robberies everyday?

I don't think so.
