Well, Not Too Much So

From The Seattle Star, November 5, 1913.

Life is money to the miser,
    To the loafer life is rest;
To the preacher life’s a sermon,
    To the joker it’s a jest.

Life’s a battle to the soldier,
    To the teacher it’s a school;
To the grafter it’s a good thing,
    It’s a failure to the fool.

Life’s an everlasting effort
    To shun duty, by the shirk,
But it’s just one long vacation
    For the man who loves his work.
