When Handed A Lemon, Make Lemonade

                                                              (title by Anonymous)

I’ve lived through lemons,

sugaring them.

“When handed a lemon, 

make lemonade.”

That is what

some sage has said.

“When handed a lemon, 

make lemonade.”

There is always a use

For lemon juice.

Do you know what to do with

trouble, children?

Make lemonade. Make lemonade.

“Handed a lemon, make lemonade.”
