WORDS TO THE WHYS
Ups and downs and ins and outs,
Forevers and nevers and whys.
Befores and afters, dos and don'ts.
Farewells and hellow and good-byes.
Lie is a string of perhapses.
A medley of whens and so whats.
We rise on our yeses and maybes.
Then fall on our nos and buts.
(Not that I would use that last word . . . JKJ)
