Expect The Worst And Hope For The Best
Poet: Lillian E Curtis


In this world where waves of trouble ever are rolling,
And discouragement is ofttimes a guest,
If, perchance, there's a fond hope with its gentle consoling,
Expect the worst and hope for the best.

There's a full cup of joy, perhaps, that's almost your own,
And may soon in your expectant clasp rest,
Yet many such ones rude winds have blown,
Then expect the worst and hope for the best.

Where life were witness to volumes of incoming sorrow,
And for the faint possibility of a forthcoming joy thirst,
Blight not the hope, nor undue misgivings borrow,
Nor less hope for the best, but be prepared for the worse.

The best needs no precedent its arrival to announce.
Twill be joyfully welcomed as animation will attest,
But Oh, lest its rival swoop down with deft, sudden pounce,
Calmly expect the worst, still hope for the best.

An emergency armor were safe fortified by an alternative plan
For there's many an if in this field of contest,
And much that is promising may prove but a sham,
Then expect the worst and hope for the best.
