“Life is to be entered upon with courage”
Start the day by eating porridge,
Carbohydrate, protein, roughage,
Work at friendships, love and marriage,
Improve yourself, do not disparage
Others who might lend a hand.
Be certain, never chase a mirage,
Take on the world, like Nigel Farage,
Improve your mind, you’re not a savage,
Value substance over image.
Seek out the truth, fear not, but forage
Increasing every day your mileage
In pursuit of wisdom.
Help your neighbours, serve your village,
Use your instincts to envisage
Life as worthwhile, ditch the garbage,
Fashion - empty, excess baggage,
Try and salvage
Truth and meaning, love and knowledge,
Enter upon life with courage.
