Never Say I Can't 

by J.J. Thorne 

A sluggard's plea is no excuse. 
It is inferior to the little ant; 
Busy as a bee, industrious is he,
That never says I can't. 

Industry is the bloom of life,
Through honor it shares to grant, 
Man becomes a slothful sluggard. 
When he says I can't. 

The seed of sorrow we often sow,
Which grows to be a dwarfish plant; 
To weed and reap a successful row, 
We must not say I can't. 

The row becomes foul with grass,
The sluggard grows and pants; 
He reaps no harvest at all alas, 
When he says I can't. 

Perseverance accomplishes much,
Patience rolls obstacles down the slant; 
When combined generally triumphs, 
The victim is I can't. 

The energy of life prudently guided,
And supervised observant, 
Will square the log of honor, 
The knots need not say it can't. .
