If you can keep your cash when all about you
are spending theirs and coming to you
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
but make allowances for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting
Or being cut and shoved, don't lose your smiles
Think of the exercise, your burning miles!Especially on the hike back to your car!
Or be rained on - be prepared for rain, the parks empty and the ponchos are a fortune - bring your own
Or watch your princess fill with a joyous flush
If teens take sibs willingly to swim the pool
Let them! Enjoy your break, grab a drink and walk over later!
And accommodations in which to sleep
Yours is the world filled with enchantment and joy
And which is more - memories to keep
(ok a bit long winded - but blame Kipling!)
