Desperata (Discovered round the back of a disused gas works tower in Barnsley)
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there might be in ear plugs.
Speak clearer your truth and listen to others; even the dull and ignorant have their story, though it might be incredibly boring.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, especially loud and aggressive tax collectors.
Keep interested in your career; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time,
even if you don't get a good mileage rate.
Be yourself; especially, do not feign infection.
Take kindly the counsel of years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth, such as decent housing and a national health service.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you from sudden misfortune; failing that, install an approved burglar alarm.
Therefore, be at peace with God and keep on your life assurance payments; no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should and, if it isn't, there's not much you can do about it.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken peace treaties, it's still a beautiful world.
