Poem: DRINK, STEAL, SWEAR & LIE

DRINK, STEAL, SWEAR & LIE

I met a man who has a motto he lives by everyday.

He said to listen carefully and
live by these 4 rules:  Drink, Steal, Swear, & Lie.


I was shaking my head 'no', but he then told me to listen
while he explained his four rules. Here they are:

1.. "Drink" from the "everlasting cup" every day.

2.. "Steal" a moment to help someone that
is in worse shape than you are.

3.. "Swear" that you will be a better
person today than yesterday.

4.. And last, but not least, when you "lie" down at night
thank God you live in America and have freedom.

I am not as good as I should be, I am not as good
as I could be. but THANK GOD,
I am better than I used to be!

Swear not. Let your yes mean yes and your no mean no, and your veracity will never be in doubt.
