...And Carry A Big Stick
Poem By Herbert Nehrlich
Walk softly, boy and always carry
a stick to chase your foes away
go get the girl you want to marry
and build that house on Horseshoe Bay.
It is not money or connections
that would secure a place for all
what matters is in which direction
you kick and follow your own ball.
Stand firm and be prepared to fight
don't compromise and don't deceive
and raise your stick when you are right
while others webs for devils weave.
