Thank you for your following.
Oscar had a relative who often said,
“Cheer up, we’ll soon be dead!”
“Prima facie” this doesn’t sound too good.
But it should be really understood
That such a comment had double meaning,
With perhaps even another, in-betweening
In one sense it could suggest,
That it might, indeed, be best,
To make the most of life, no not naught,
Because, as is well known, life is short.
Another interpretation that might be considered macabre, yes!
Is that life is so onerous, yes a mess!
That a cause for good cheer, could be to see it’s end,
To complete and escape it’s onerous trend.
Either way it’s still good advice,
Alluding, perhaps, to something nice.
And since pleasures can, now-a-days, be rare,
Of anything that offers cheer, we should take care.
