Private! Joneses Only!



But but but but but but but but but but but but.

But but but but but but but but but but but but.

Keep repeating this verse till it's all out of your system.

Say it till you're sick of buts, and sure you'll never miss them.

You might as well just say it now: But but but but...come on!

Use it up and wear it out. Let every but he gone.

This plague, this scourge: get rid of it. Erase it from your mind.

This saboteur of plans and dreams will rob and make you blind.

The noblest plan and wisest scheme are doomed with "but" thrown in.

For, if you follow what you say with "but," you'll never win.

If an "and" will not suffice, a period will do.

Stop short of "but." Refuse to let that scoundrel bully you.

Remember: All that follows "but" is only an excuse

to fail, or quit, or think that fatal thought: "Oh what's the use?"

"I would like to, but.." "I know I could, but.." (not again!)

I know you want to work on this, but but but but...When?!

So take this opportunity and get out of a rut!

Don't let your life be ruined by a nasty little "but."
