ALL THINGS IN MODERATION
If we indulge in suspect substances
Or drink alcohol to excess
It clouds our personal judgement
And interferes with our success.
We should not drive an automobile
Or pilot a passenger plane
We shouldn't operate machinery -
That's considered just insane.
Yet there are those who do these things
Without a second thought
Do they realize there are lives at stake -
Or is it just a sport?
It's fine to get together with a friend
And enjoy a small libation
To relax and have a laugh or two
But keep in mind: All things in moderation.
