They say, every good boy deserves fudge.
Going out on the proverbial limb,
despite fear of heights, airplanes,
elevators and lighthouses,
I say, boys will be boys;
every good girl deserves fudge as well.

They sing, "Go tell it on the mountain,
over the hills and everywhere."

I say, stick with the food metaphors;
let them eat cake with Marie Antoinette.

They say, marriage is made in heaven.
I say from my own experiences
and quoting Abraham Lincoln,
"Marriage is neither heaven or hell,
it is simply purgatory."

They say, "Be all you can be."
Abe and I would say, "Avoid popularity
if you would have peace.
My great concern is not whether you failed,
but whether you are content
with your failure."
