I am for 'Yes'....

Never say 'No' if you don`t have to...
'No's are caterpillars.
They give bad itches to soft minds!
Ugh! They squirm like creepy-crwalies!

'Yes' with a beam feels a good sunshine!
calls many to bathe in pleasant light.
Timely 'Yes' can save wreckage and ruin!
Who does not love to see a morning fair and bright?

'Yes' comes out faster than a 'No'...
'No' stomps and thuds; hits and hurts!
'Yes' walks and runs; gallops and soars!
One 'Yes' outweighs a hundred 'No's.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
