Nil Desperandum....
When troubles beset you
and cause you to fret
don't be so worried,
don't be upset.

*nil desperandum bastardo carborundum.

If people deceive you
and folks let you down
lift up your head,
don't give in to a frown

*nil desperandum bastardo carborundum.

When someone you love
causes you a great pain,
don't let them hurt you
then hurt you again.

*nil desperandum bastardo carborundum.

(loosely translated to:
don't let the b..s grind you down!)

For my very dear friend Yvonne
with love.
