Words should be words and time, always time;
If these two are elastic, they aren’t worth a dime.
Words must mean exactly what they are meant to say
And time shouldn’t be allowed to, at the edges, fray.
Being elastic in character is flexibility personified
Imparts a charm that’s under a bushel difficult to hide
Wait! Watch! Careful! Be not a pushover though!
If right and meet, with squared shoulders, say a clear “No”.
Remember, elastic is elastic only when it’s firm and snug.
Think of some of your lingerie or a pair of pants.
What good is it really, if your hips it cannot hug?
Instead, at your waist, you feel a bunch of crawling ants.
So try and be elastic only when it is necessary.
When you can’t, just lie back, sip a glass of sherry.
In this life, it’s impossible to make happy everybody
In the end, it’s best to be genuine, than to be shoddy.
