Be A Booster
by David V. Bush
Boost, and the world boosts with you;
Knock, and you knock alone;
If you're out to win through thick and thin
You must have the booster's tone!
Kick, and your toes will suffer;
Boost, and you'll put it through;
For the throng can't halt while you find fault,
But will pay you for what you do!
Boost, and the world respects you;
Knock, and it turns its face;
You must help, not balk; for the railer's talk
Keeps him back in the busy race.
Knock, and the doors are bolted;
Boost, and they open wide;
There is little use for sour abuse.
And they're looking for smiles inside!
Lift, and the load is easy;
Lean, and it seems too great;
You should throw your force in the proper course
If you want it to move the weight!
Boost, and the Fates will help you;
Knock, and the ill winds fret;
You can't keep afloat if you rock the boat,
Or speed if your brake is set!
Boost, and your spirit's happy;
Knock, and your fate's unkind;
You can reap no boon when you're out of tune,
For the crowd never stops to mind!
Boost, and the world is with you;
Knock, and you pine alone;
So blithely stand for your task and land.
And the world will become your own!
