Don’t Drown

There never is enough wine in the world
To drown the worst of the sorrow
There never is enough time in the world
So make the best of tomorrow.

If you make a ‘stand gainst the evils of the world
You make a stand ‘gainst that sorrow.
Don’t think you’re alone ‘gainst the woes of the world
You’ll find there are others to follow.

You carry your share of the weight of the world
No need more of trouble to borrow
You have your share and your stake in the world
That’s quite enough to swallow.

E.M. Swift-Hook
