    It is interesting to note that all through the centuries of recorded writing, stopping to contemplate graves where men lay whose lives have run their course seems to provoke thoughts of prudence and caution. Why not observe the end of all mankind and rather counsel us to

    *... run life's mad career,
    Wild as the wave...*

    Forget prudent and cautious living. Run wild in the breeze and the sun, soak up every minute of life, be kind and helpful to all you can, but live, man, live! ! !

    What to state about this Great
    To-days Run is race of rage-
    Global Warmimg and Global Village.
    Bards are dying in Melting craze
    Burns balmed them centuries ahead.
    Larks are extinct Love is brewed
    'Know prudent, cautious, self-control
    Is wisdom's root.'
