The Choice Is Yours!

The elevator to the top is out of order

‘No short-cut” shout one caller

“You will have to use the stairs!”

Everyone present just stood and stared.

On step at a time

You need to climb

The higher you want to pursue

Greater diligence must ensue.

Go the extra mile

Try always to smile

Even when the going is tough

You must never crouch.
