There Once Was an Oyster

Oyster 11There once was an oyster, whose story I’ll tell Who found that some sand, had gotten into his shell It was only a grain, but gave him great pain For oysters have feelings, although they are plain Now, did he berate the harsh workings of fate That had brought him to such a deplorable state?

“No”, he said to himself, “Since I cannot remove it”, I’ll lie in my shell, and think how to improve it”…

The years rolled around, as the years always do, And he came to his ultimate destiny …. stew. Now the small grain of sand that had bothered him so, Was a beautiful pearl all richly aglow…

This tale has a morale, for isn’t it grand, What an oyster can do with a morsel of sand? Think…what could we do, if we’d only begin, With some of the things that get under our skin.
