Enrichment

Good luck improving your lot
the weary world is running low
be happy with what you've got.

Convinced you're such a have-not
when millions have nothing to show?
Good luck improving your lot

forgetting the frozen sot
with nowhere warm to go,
be happy with what you've got

not teeth consumed by rot
that starving children grow,
good luck improving your lot

before you fill your plot
and lose your chance to sow.
Be happy with what you've got

that you even get a single shot
to let a needy person know
you'll help improve their lot--
be happy with what you've got.

A form I find particularly difficult to work with, so I'm VERY impressed. Excellently done.

Thanks Dave, as a songwriter I like the repeating line, like a chorus.

Bob,

A very difficult time of the year. The haves and the have nots. All found in every world-wide city.
A time of the year to be thankful for out lot in life.

Eileen :)
