Time Again to Rhyme

Going to the Dog:

O thine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the food
Your tail it is a-wagging and you’re in a hungry mood
It is only your Purina but to you it still tastes good
Tommy, breakfast now is served.

Healthful Thoughts:
The keys to daily living unlock all you need to know
About work and play so every day ends with inner glow.
It’s common sense the best defense against stress is to move,
For mind and body exercise can keep us in the groove.
Food is fuel so don’t be foolish when it comes to chow;
Plant-based meals can power us through future, not just now.
One-third of life is best spent lying down and fast asleep;
Stretching, coping, socializing help us health to keep.
The Golden Rule is precious no matter how it is applied,
So seek justice and peace to make your life a nice smooth ride.
Follow the science, not just the money, to choose what to do;
Then for a hundred years folks will sing “Happy Birthday to You”.
Take care of Earth, a garden planet special as they come;
Keep animals, trees, air, and water safe from actions dumb.

Mr. Meant To has a comrade
And his name is Didn’t Do
Have you ever chance to meet them?
Did they ever call on you?
These two fellows lived together
In the house of Never Win
And I am told that it is haunted
By the ghost of Might Have Been
— author unknown (John Wooden?)
