CROSS PURPOSES

Don't be cross with me, life is too short mon ami,
we should behave nicely, conduct ourselves sincerely,
of course, we can not avoid critique but needn't be meek,
lighten up - there is no guarantee in what you seek.

Now, I wasn't talking about fruits, men in suits,
rather, maybe some go back to their dubious routes,
just because I mentioned that I like a nice pear,
didn't mean that it should be served medium rare.

My children asked me if I was having a day at the races,
I thought they said that they all needed braces,
'Is it true that if we're good, we all go to heaven?'
I said: 'I told you - everyone must be in bed by eleven.'

Don't be oppo'sight,' if I say black, then you say white,
be careful, otherwise we'll all end up in the shite.
