Seems as apt today as ever….
Some glory in their birth, some in their skill
Some enjoy a pint, some prefer a pill
Some are shallow, followers of fashion,
Some see their art as the epitome of passion.
Some pay a fortune to retain their youth
Some hold the common touch, some just stand aloof.
But wherever you stand on this spectrum
Finding joy remains a conundrum.
The secret is not found in one’s reputation
Nor in some chemical hallucination.
The simple truth is clear, as was ever thus
Always say you’re sorry and never make a fuss.
