Things I'Ve Never Done

Today I thought it might be fun
Writing of things I’ve never done
Like flying out in outer space
Or winning a Supreme Court case

I’ve never caught a touchdown pass
Or found a track star I could surpass
I never wrote a hit pop tune
Or a classic tune like Claire de Lune

Never found my Lost Horizon
Which, of course, is not suprisin’
Even though I was so inclined
I never had a concubine

Didn’t act in a picture show
Or swim with fish, like Jacque Cousteau
I’ve never climbed the highest peaks
Or had a record winning streak

Could it be, I’ve missed a lot?
If that is so, I say “so what”
Why worry about those things I’ve shunned
I’m quite delighted with those I’ve done

Applause here Stanley, a lovely write and humourous with it. A bit of humility here too. Well done, enjoyed it immensely Love Ernestine XXX.
