One ole man’s advice to his kid:
“It doesn’t matter what you say or do,
unless what you say or do matters.”
No matter how they laugh,
sing along and dance to the last song,
most people wish they were already back home.
One particularly subversive oldster’s advice to the rebellious nipper:
“If they interrogate you in Spanish, reply in German.”
If, from the listing, sinking deck,
there are loud voices discoursing on the nature of
“God’s unfathomable, inalterable and inescapable will,”
you can be pretty sure there are no life boats.
A real man doesn’t make excuses…
he buys them wholesale…prepackaged, disposable,
ready to use.
