We are here only once, and not for long at that.
In geologic time, much less than the 8 seconds of a bull ride.
Hang on! Ride it out!
With regular unscheduled outbursts
of Yippee! and Yahoo!
This is IT, don’t you know?
Don’t be dissing it because it isn’t more like you thought it would be
and wish it were.
Live it all the way to the closing horn.
Start practicing your Yippee’s! and Yahoo’s!
And wave your hat around.
That would be a nice touch.
