Man, O Man! never can tell the simple truth !
Says share market is bad but keeps speculating;
Says money is evil but keeps accumulating.
Says high positions are lonely but keeps wanting them.
Says gambing & drinking is bad but keeps indulging;
Man O Man ! Never means what he says and never says what he means!
