As you sow, so you reap.
Be thankful if it turns out so.
For, if you really think on it,
It is your best scenario.
You could have sown in barren soils.
You could have sown in rainless years.
You could have sown before a flood
And hanged yourself on unshed tears.
A songbird pecks, an insect drills,
A neighbour steals, you pay the bills.
Remember, if you reap at all,
You could have had the worst befall.
