For the Other 365 Days

By Franklin P. Adams

(Contemporary American humorist)
CHRISTMAS is over. Uncork your ambition!
Back to the battle! Come on, competition!
Down with all sentiment, can scrupulosity!
Commerce has nothing to gain by jocosity;
Money is all that is worth all your labors;        5
Crowd your competitors, nix on your neighbors!
Push ’em aside in a passionate hurry,
Argue and bustle and bargain and worry!
Frenzy yourself into sickness and dizziness—
Christmas is over and Business is Business.        10
