a two-fisted life

(Beethoven's 9th inspires much.)

get up off your couch,
off your barstool,
off your high horse,
off your ass;

stand up and sing dammit:
ring ring ring;
until everyone around you can't stand it;
yell like hell and make it sound swell:
yell yell yell;
make some damned noise,
all you prim and proper girlz and boyz;

live your life today;
forget prudence that withered little spinster:
live a two-fisted life,
and live it your way;

because none of us are guaranteed tomorrow,
and even if we were,
we might not want to stay.
