The Straight and Narrow

I'm sure you've noticed throughout your life There are definite rights and wrongs As soon as you determine which is which You'll be singing a happy song It won't always hit you like a ton of bricks When it does you surely will see The error of your ways pretty damn quickly As you face the third degree When I was young and learning the ropes It soon became obvious to me You can't really take things that aren't yours It didn't take me long to see So as of this day, my conscience is clear Must say I've led a very clean life Always travelled the straight and narrow Listen up, it's very sound advice

And good advice too Jack. Our good friend Milton passed away on the 22nd Dec. He was a good friend and supportive to many. Tom
