Compensation Pete Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 0

Sponsored Links

He used to say: There ain't a doubt

Misfortune is a bitter pill,

But if you only pry it out

You'll find there's good in every ill.

There's comfort in the worst of woe,

There's consolation in defeat . . .

Oh what a solace-seeker! So

We called him Compensation Pete.

He lost his wealth - but was he pipped?

Why no - "That's fine," he used to say.

"I've got the government plumb gypped -

No more damn income tax to pay.

From cares of property set free,

And with no pesky social ties,

Why, even poverty may be

A benediction in disguise."

He lost his health: "Okay," he said;

"I'm getting on, may be the best.

I've always loved to lie abed,

And now I have the right to rest.

Such heaps o' things I want to do,

I'll have no time to fret or brood.

I'll read the dam ol' Bible through:

Guess it'll do me plenty good."

He has that line of sunny shine

That makes a blessing of a curse,

And he would say: "Don't let's repine,

Though things are bad they might be worse."

And so he cherished to the end

Philosophy so sane and sweet

That everybody was his friend . . .

With optimism hard to beat -

God bless old Compensation Pete.
