MONDAY: Mrs. Parker’s Lemonade

You eventually do hit the point
That what Dad said is true:
Indeed, no one ever said it’s fair,
No matter what you do.

School, team player, work overtime,
Even eating all your veggies.
No matter what you have set up,
Coins still land upon their edges.

So when you next get the news,
After all those wasted hours,
That life is giving yet more lemons
Make damned good whiskey sours.
