Mary Jo Diemer, of Rosebud Marketing sends her humor on Persistence!

PERSISTENCE ……………..don’t ever give up!

Two young little frogs from inland bogs had spent the night a drinking.
When morning broke they both awoke with eyes blood shot and blinking.
For time had come to gather senses and say a prayer for past offenses.

Now a farmer’s trail came to the swale and caught them quick a winking.
The farmer was a guileless man and put the frogs in a big milk can.
The frogs went in and the lid came down, both frogs and milk were shipped to town.

Our friends began to quiver and quake and sober up on a cold milk shake
……….for now they had to kick and swim until their bleary eyes grew weak and dim.
Alas one frog cried out in dread, “we’re going to drown, we’re good as dead”,
“For shame for shame” the other replied, “a frog’s not dead until he’s died,
keep on kickin’ that’s my plan, we may yet see outside this can”.
“No use no use“, the first replied, and with a groan he quickly died.

But the other frog undaunted still kept kicking with a firmer will,
until a joy too great to utter, had found he’d churned a lump of butter.

The moral of the story is:

When things are tough all over town, don’t give up and don’t go down.
Just keep on kickin’ don’t cry or mutter, for one more kick may bring the butter.


Sent to you with warm wishes for Persistence and Success in 2009!

Mary Jo,
You sure got that right! When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.
