Life Is A Witch

Life is not a day at the beach

Life is a darn witch

That we must learn to live with

We must tolerate the length and the width

No, I am not talking about that, pervert

We must learn to swim in it, without being hurt

Or drowning like a lost comet

Do your best always and do not bet

On the wrong horse. Carpe diem

And in front of all obstacles, stand firm

Be strong and optimistic

Positive people always win, there’s nothing mystic

On earth about that. Life is a doggone witch

Not a day or night at the beach.
