If You Like What's In The Way - Poem by douglas scotney

If you're thinking of what you can do without
and of what you can get for nothing
for which you are now being asked to pay,
you're not going to like what's in the way
if what it is you want for nothing
is what you think you can't do without.

You can only like what's in the way
if what you want for nothing
is what you can do without.

    Those emus should have read this before they drank too much salt water, went mad and started chasing each other round the lake. If you can't do without fresh water, you have to pay for it. (Report) Reply
