SPOS'N

By Otto Farina, Army

Writing Type: Poem

Spos'n you had no teeth to chew.
Spos 'n your clothes are not new.
Spos'n your coffee is not hot,
Spos 'n your father is a sot.
Spos'n your kin doesn't do right,
Spos'n your neighbors always fight.
Spos'n your pay is not enough,
Spos'n your boss is mean and tough.
Spos'n you see a gloomy face,
Spos'n you feel out of place.
Spos' n things go from bad to worse,
Spos'n all is lost; try not to curse.
Spos'n your head has no hair,
Spos'n your steak is not cooked rare.
Spos 'n your vase has no flower,
Spos'n your engine has no power.
Spos'n all goes wrong; it sometimes will,
Spos'n your road is all uphill.
Spos'n you think life ain't worthwhile,
Stop spos 'n and try spos 'n a smile.
