I’ll Take That!

If you want a win you’ll take a draw

‘Cos losing hits a nerve that’s raw

As good times go you’ll take the bad

An alternative to going mad

Now as for diets and keeping slim,

you’ll take whatever clothes your in

As long as they look reasonable enough,

to get the doubters to call your bluff 

You’ll take any odds on a winning horse

As long as the nag just finishes the course 

If front of every other jockey

Especially the one that’s looking stocky

If the Sat-nav says to take a right

You’ll take a left to avoid missing your flight

To Spain or France or the Canary Isles

But the food will probably give you piles

But no matter where or what your at 

The tax man says “hey I’ll take that”!!

Thanks Taylor, we both enjoy rhyme. I love the challenge of it and performances of them seem to go down better with my audiences.😀

Pithy and hitting a few marks on our way through life.
We all make-do with second best or making mistakes at times and console ourselves with reasons we can accept.
I particularly like the pay-off line. Spot on!
