The way of the world

As is often said and heard

It’s the way of the world

Though it’s rather weird

That help comes pouring

When you have everything

That’s the thing most surprising.

But there’s something rather disgusting

When misfortune robs you of everything,

And leaves you with nothing,

Closed, closed are all eyes

Severed completely are all ties

And for succor the soul cries.

Only where a tough a will lies

Bears all trials and survives.
