SHELL SHOCKED

He had some very nice dreams,

Dispensing delicious creams…

Business went bad–

He lost all he had–

So much for his innocent dreams!

Life gave him a bad turn,

Discouragement began its worm…

Into his soul

Filling the hole,

Blasted out when that dream burned!

Slowly new dreams took shape,

Other dreams he wouldn’t ape…

With work to do

His courage renewed,

Survived he, from a bad scrape!

–J.E.C.
