    Awesome poem.........
    Leave the racers in the stalls,
    Leave the cards for ever shuffled,
    Leave the yacht on seas unruffled,
    Leave the haunts of pampered ease,
    Leave your dull festivities—
    Better far the savage glen,
    Fitter school for earnest men.....Liked by Ommu Sir.
