Testing Limits Of Hospitality - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
old wise tales oft spoken quoted
'familiarity breeds contempt'
differences in character traits bite
honoured guest was courtesy greeted
preparations exquisite food wine finest
but beware fools who welcome overstays
fruitful moral is generosity
decreases with familiarity
tests limits of hospitality
