    The Spice of Life # 1

    ONE SECRET TO A HAPPY LIFE # 1

    One secret to a happy life
    Is this, more or less
    Take every opportunity to
    Mind your own business.

    THE PAINTER AND HIS MODEL

    The painter and his model
    Were smitten from the very start
    And every stroke of his brush
    Said “I love you with all my art”

    PARALYMPIANS

    They should not be seen as disabled
    When they compete
    A Paralympian should be viewed
    Simply as an Athlete

    AFTER SIX LONG YEARS OF BATTLE

    After six long years of battle,
    Triumph came to the side of light
    When the scourge of hostility ended
    And Victory in Europe Day began
    With joyous revelling and dancing
    A new life for the country began
    Then as Victory night passed,
    And daylight broke through,
    The peace dawned anew

    IF YOU’VE LEARNED NOTHING IN LIFE

    If you’ve learned nothing in life
    Take this piece of advice from me
    Remember this if nothing else,
    Your character is your destiny

    HE WANDERED THE STREETS

    He wandered the streets
    Clothed in tattered rags
    And shod in scruffy boots
    That didn’t keep out the rain
    So he turned to crime
    To fill his hollow belly
    And then Victorian justice
    Clothed him in a ball and chain

    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    I liked the one about minding one's own business as a path to happiness and the advice about character and destiny.
