A little Poetree for Gary Vee
I'd rather risk gamely And lose for my trying Than grind around tamely --A cog in the mill.
I'd rather fail greatly With courage undying Than plod on sedately With never a thrill!
The game's in the playing And, losing or winning, The fun's in the essaying Your bravest and best, In taking your chances While fate's wheel is spinning And backing your fancies With nerve and with zest!
Let stodgy folk censure and timid folk quaver, But life sans adventure Is weary to bear, The dangers we're sharing Give living its savour I'd rather die daring Than never to dare!
