When Life Gives You Lemons...


When Life Gives You Lemons
As It Sometimes Will
When All Seems Futile
And All Uphill
Just Turn Your Head
Away From The Fight
Forget The Past
As The Future Is Bright

When Life Gives You Lemons
Some Tequila You Add
Smile Now Sister
It's Not So Bad
When Life Gives You Lemons
It Can Be Sweet
Just Add Your Own Touches
And Oh What A Treat

It Makes You Pucker
And Wince Just A Bit
Add A Little Something To It
May Pack Quite A Hit
So When Life Offers Lemons
Take Them With A Smile
We All Get Our Lemons
Enjoy Them In Style

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
