Joseph T. Renaldi
Much Of Anything
Much eating, much weight,
Generally speaking, your life is at stake.
Much drinking, much intoxication,
May lead to a grim and calamitous fate.
Much on earth, little in Heaven,
Where there is life there is hope.
Much praying, but no piety,
Receive condolences from the Pope.
Much money, much needed care,
Be sure to have a well hidden stash.
Much froth, little beer,
Pouring too quickly into the glass.
Much smoke, but little roast,
Many long for the aromatic smell.
Much talk, little work,
Talking is easier than digging a well.
