~ Lemons in the Limelight ~

Tears run down a small child’s face,
He missed the big parade.
Mother comforts with some cookies,
And a glass of lemonade.

When life’s not what you thought it’d be,
When the new boss is a monster.
When someone hands you lemons,
Just squeeze it on some lobster.

When romance doesn’t come your way,
When love eludes your heart,
When someone hands you lemons,
Then make a lemon tart.

When melancholy blue’s your song,
When all the jokes are told
When someone hands you lemons,
Salt, a wedge, Tequila Gold.

Okay and this is really a good message to people given lemons. You are right a glass of lemonade has magic to it. Especially on a hot day.
