A School Of Life-Lore

Time sets me thinking of a school of life-lore.
If you go through each of its twists and turns,
life's every page will startle you a lot more.

Not always waves come lapping fine on the shore
or happiness sways in the wind like hillside ferns.
Time sets me thinking of a school of life-lore.

Your thirst fetches you draughts as in a downpour
and tells on you what of adventure it learns.
Life's every page will startle you a lot more

than flirting with a big-salaried busty whore
as it doesn't scare us of love's blisters and burns.
Time sets me thinking of a school of life-lore.

Nothing quietens us like bank notes we adore;
till then, we bleat on and on in life's big barns.
Life's every page will startle you a lot more.

Out, out, like bats, to open your long-closed store;
no fortune if there's time none ever churns.
Time sets me thinking of a school of life-lore.
Life's every page will startle you a lot more.
