To handle to the world, strap yourself in
Keep yourself trim,
And tighten the slack
In a single moment you can do
Or undo
Events great and small
Rise or fall
Keep to your script
If you create one, that is
Choose a favourite line
There’s plenty of time
When you begin
Look back and vent
At times misspent
But discard that shell
And in time you will tell
That you handle your world
With vigour and cheer
And know
That it’s really great
Being here


I borrowed a little trick from Colonialist here, and used all the words in order. I didn’t keep things as succinct as Col does, however.
