For Pam

It can be hard to get ahead in the world

It bites and you get what you get

Nothing less


You make your own fortune

With things of value that are worthless

And you don’t complain

For you get what you get


When the chance comes to make

To create

Take it

And do what you can to make it pay


And as it rains down upon you

Think to yourself if that chance were missed

So to would be the rain

And you would be thirsty for water
