IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE - Part VII

IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE : VII

(Thoughts on a fast-receding fearful Me-Too Year)

IF you pull a long face
And you can't make it go away try as you may
No use putting on a pretty smile on the face
The smile will likely turn leer in a day

If you pull a long face
And it keeps coming back every other day
Then it's an illness at the serious phase
No doctor can tell you to call it a day

Yet if you only pull a long face
On certain days in the week like Sunday
It might mean you're allergic to Holy Mary grace
Not much Good will it do you to choose, say, Friday

If you still keep pulling a long face
No matter which church-going week day you pray
No doctor can save you from losing face
Best to wear a Monte Cristo mask all your livelong day

So if you must pull a long face
The sledge kind Santa Claus pulls on Xmas Day
Make sure no Me-Too Gals your drinks lace
You might live to regret it some far-off day
