“The Old Story” Poem”


The first bowl:

Modern Adam, modern Eve,

Seventeen, they'll never grieve;

Age of luck and love forever,

Growing older?

Never, never.


The Second bowl:

Modern Adam, modern Eve,

Life has pretty much to give,

Making children, home, career,

Getting richer year by year.


The Third bowl:

Poor old Adam, poor old Eve,

Soon they must prepare to leave,

Leaving proudly to their nation, a large increase in population.
