Be happy with what you have
Then you will have what you hope
Firmly, work and save
Simply, you reach the top

Do believe in God's Judging
And gain your thought results
God never asks a jumbling

I never thought
But I know I made the right decision because
It is you are the reason.

“It stands on a hill,” you say,
"a golden fortress, buttress to our faith,
a Heavenly Jerusalem to Rome's decay”.
Such piety is useful
to commanders of the expendable,

I've lived the times
Of the theater of my life
Dancing in the foyer:
Comprised the entirety
Of my personal repetoire;
Dress rehearsals were
Never taken seriously:
The final play was just
A moments decision
Hurried through a huddle
Of half-written plots.
The masterful monologues
Of my long and intrepid career
Were carried off by the
Glib tongue of the cha...
