You are the one who used to boast
That you’d achieve the uttermost,
You merely wished a show,
To demonstrate how much you know
And to prove the distance you can go……..
Another year we’ve just passed through.
What new ideas came to you?
How many big things did you do?
Time . . . . left twelve fresh months in your care
How many of them did you share
With opportunity and dare
Again where you so often missed?
We do not find your name in the List of Makers Good.
Explain the fact!
Ah no, ‘twas not the chance you lacked!
As usual - you failed to act!
