I have the poem below framed and have it hanging in my house, it's written in in the old style of writing and it used to hang in my grandparents home, when my grandfather passed on it was the one thing I wanted, because every time I went round his house I used to read it and it made me smile to myself........ and still does Very Happy

REFLECTIONS ON SOBREITY

THE HORSE AND MARE LIVE 30 YEARS
AND DO NOT KNOW OF WINES AND BEERS

THE GOATS AND SHEEP AT TWENTY DIE
AND NEVER TASTE THEY SCOTCH OR RYE

THE COW DRINKS WATER BY THE TON
AT 15 LIFE IS NEARLY DONE

THE DOG AT 14 PACKS IT IN
WITHOUT THE AID OF RUM OR GIN

THE MODEST SOBER, BONE DRY HEN
LAYS EGGS FOR YEARS AND DIES AT 10

BUT SINFUL, GINFUL, RUM SOAKED MEN
SURVIVE TILL THREE SCORE YEARS AND TEN

AND SOME OF...THE MIGHTY FEW
STAY PICKLED TILL WE'RE NINETY TWO!

Lovely poem Mac, I read it the other night and I can see why you like it.

I take from the poem what I see in you, someone that enjoys life to the full, yet respects and helps others.
