Do a good thing and never get mentioned
Do something bad or make a mistake however,
And the news spread like bush fire

Write something and they only focus
On what they don’t like
The rest is forgotten

Do something wrong
And they judge you all your life

He lies about what happened
But just because he is in a position of power
Everyone believes him

Lose when you play well
But win when you are not at your best

Work hard for weeks on something
And they don’t even like it
But make up something on the spot and they love it
