And Then Something To Mull Over….

Taken from 'Verse and Worse', a few nice lines to mull {pun?} over as you prepare for the weekend.

The horse and mule live 30 years
And nothing know of wines and beers.
The goat and sheep at 20 die
And never taste of Scotch or Rye.
The cow drinks water by the ton
And at 18 is mostly done.
The dog at I5 cashes in
Without the aid of rum and gin.
The cat in milk and water soaks .
And then in I2 short years it croaks.
The modest, sober, bone-dry hen
Lays eggs for nogs, then dies at 10.
All animals are strictly dry:
They sinless live and swiftly die;
But sinful, gin-full, rum-soaked men
Survive for three score years and ten.
And some of them, yes, quite a few,
Stay pickled 'till they’re 92.

Quote; Jim Jefferies.

"If you don’t drink, then all of your stories suck and end with, 'And then I got home'."
