Elastic


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.
