12 THE PEN SOMETHING WORTHWHILE It is true that life is oftimes rugf^ed Part of it was meant to be that way, Blit remember it isn.’t the easy work That will brinf? a brighter day. Always the things worth having Are moi;e thain worth your while So put on your armor of daringness And face life’s work with a smile. Question not the passing oblations Whether or not it will benefit yon, But rather say in all sincereness T will give to posterity the best that I can do. Only that ■which seems hard yet genuine Is the crux of that worthwhiie But always the story will unfold As a drama before your eyes. Whom, yon have .ionrneyed the hard way And at last reach the peak of success You can look yourself in the face and say This is the proof of life’s worthiness. Violteta Edwards THE SONG OF THE DISHES (!ra,sh. s])lash, clink, clatter! This is the song of the dishes. I wish there were some other way we could eat. Soine other way that’s clean and neat Without having after-dishes. Sometimes T can go for a nice juicy steak. But when I think of the mess it '^oud make on the plate 1 shake my head with chagrin and hate— I can just see those damn load of dishes. Ah me! I almost forgot The pans and the pot; They, too, must be scoured and scrubbed. Crash, splash, clink, clatter!
