If any can show what many cannot
With courage in adversity
Hold things together; not lose the plot
But show the timorous pity
Then they will reap as they have sown
Lauded by their peers
Who then may boast that they have known
A few who conquered their fears
Just how crazy can it get?
This cruelly wasted chance
No clear way forward emerging yet
We’re being led a merry dance
‘Leaders’ push, pull, point, all in vain
They’re facing different ways
Concerned only, it seems, for political gain
Yet running out of days
Decision referred to a people’s vote
Then lurching to a general election
This circus must have seemed remote
All oblivious to sure EU rejection
Cometh the hour, cometh the man?
With courage to grasp the nettle?
A will-do attitude, not ‘no-can’
A LEADER who has some mettle
But no one out there seems up to the job
They’re letting the UK down
I’ve wasted two votes and want to sob
Was it me who was the clown?
Perfection is unachievable
Aspiring to it is not
Growing old is simple;
Just take it one day at a time
Happiness isn’t just ‘out there’ to be had.
You have to make your own.
Sensible parents know children need to be given love and support, time and hope. Foolish ones believe money and possessions can be a substitute for these.
