Laugh and be Merry


                                         Laugh    and    be    merry...

                                     Do    not    waste    your    days,

                                         Sitting ,    oh    so    glum !

                                       Make    your    eyes    twinkle,

                                         Gleaming    at    the    sun.

                                    Though    big    enough    to    win,

                                        But    big    enough    to    lose

                                                    ...  Is   fun.  

                                  Laugh    and    be    merry,    my    son.

    On my horse poem, I put the meaning of Charley Horse for the people not Americans to understand. That means leg cramps! (go read it again and you should understand. Even some of my american friends were not getting it so I put charley horse into the first stanza)
