Ole bravely took the news
From his old M.D..
The doctor hemmed & hawed a bit,
Then said, “Just look at me.
I’ve been your friend these many years
And this is what I see.
Your days are numbered, I tell you now;
Get your affairs in order.
A will you must make, for heaven’s sake,
Ready for the Recorder.
And get together all your bills
Before you pass the border.”
The doctor knew and Ole knew
That Ole really should
Pay the doctor his big bill
Now, while he still could.
But Ole thought of that old proverb
That said to, “Pay as you go –
Unless you are going for good!”
