Carpe Diem

A Macaronic Verse [it could be worse!]
That Hails from way Down Under
Just Count the Days and Mend thy Ways
{What's he on about, I wonder ?}

Carpe Diem

The Years have come the Years have Gone
And soon we meet our Maker
With Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust
And Old Nick the hindmost taker.

And Life is short, to short for Most
With Many Doomed to Die
Before the Allotted span is Reached
And we must Wonder Why?

But Life is Oft a Cross to Bear
With Pain and Grief and Tears
Who wants more Years unto the Life
If there's no life unto the Years ?

So to those of you who Read these Words
Just say a Pater Noster
For life gets Shorter with each Day
And You, are on The Roster !!

Bernard is from New Zealand, one of the civilized nations of the world
