Life can be good anywhere, so says a gist;
How it goes, is what you make of it.
To be born with a silver spoon;
That’s a good start, though thinks not a goon.
Learning can be an advantage, not to a fool;
Only if applied, would there be gain in full.
Failing to plan is like planning to fail;
Unlikely, would anybody a fool’s failure hail.
When opportunity at your door-mouth lands;
Foolish it is be not to hold it with both hands
Hard work hasn’t been known to kill any;
But avoiding it has led to the death of many.
There’s no such thing like marrying a bad wife;
But if often, hits you then, you’re on to a bad life.
If you grow old, it’s good any day for you to die;
But otherwise, what your wife has to say is a lie,
If you died, with cash and property loaded;
On a farewell party, nobody needs to be goaded.
If you leave a will, thinking that that’ll do it;
You’ve got to think again, mistresses don’t go for it.
