Rising to the challenge

Start out your day all wild and chaotic;
it can only get better.
More effective than an antibiotic
is a big knee-slapping laugh-getter.

The disorder will not only decrease,
but improve by the extreme comparison,
and, though you progress may suddenly cease,
it doesn't have to be embarrassin'.

Though wacky and slapstick and all fairly futile,
and productive chances seem slim,
to explain a day that's turning out brutal,
don't give it a thought, just blame Jim.
