The poem equates to Rudyard Kipling's poem If, in the sense that it looks at When you have done all in life; what then?

                     When You Have

 

 

     - By -

                         Vaughan A Jones

 

 

When you've run all your races, and now you're spent,

When you've acted honourable and said all you've meant,

When you've won and achieved most all of your goals,

When you've successfully played out all your roles,

 

                                   AND;

 

When you've obeyed all laws and rules in your life,

And you've kept the peace, living without any strife,

When you've worked hard, sweat drips from your brow,

And you've provided for hoem and family without any row.

 

                     AND WHAT'S MORE;

 

When all is said and done, for your country you’ve fought,

You’ve learned many lessons, done everything you were taught,

When it's all over, and at the end of your life here on earth,

Does God pat your back and say without any mirth,

 

You have done well, my child, here's your reward;

 

                                OR

 

Too bad, so sad,

From Your Dad.
