There once was a man who was always worried,
Who would fidget and fret, who was never hurried,
Who never ended projects because he’d never begin,
Who forfeited the prospect of loss and the chance of win.
This man was never happy, as he never had fun,
But the man was always safe, so the argument’s begun:
Is it better to take no losses, take no risk, and take no gain?
Or to try and work it out, take the chance, pay or pain?
