That's Life


If a vagabond,
Has a crooked finger and a crooked heart,
He may very well have a straight mind.
But if a vagabond has a straight finger and a straight heart,
He may very well have a crooked mind.

The weak and the redeemed good,
May sometime be content with an evil deed.
But the old and routine evil,
Is content with a streak of good.

That's life my friend,
Maybe, maybe not.
Read it over,
Might change your thoughts.

Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
