From the beginning there was no misgiving,

when many a bank gave us the shank,

that this and that was meant to be,

especially with brothers numbering 3,

the whole family put chips on the table…

believing the promise surely able;

And now some 20 years we’ve massed,

reflections of friendships come and passed…

the one true memory never fades,

sentiments, perhaps, from how we’re raised,

when the  pressure’s on, and you’re about to quit her…

Just remember: Life’s too short to be bitter!™
