Halifax, Nova Scotia
Before you leave home, take up your gear
there are things that you will need.
Put on your coat of dignity,
the one made out of tweed.
This way the winds won't harm you,
you won't shiver in the cold.
And when situations confront you,
evil will not take hold.
Slip on your shoes of determination,
to get where you want to go.
So you won't end up in the ditch,
or worse yet, on skid row!
To top that off put on your hat,
the one that covers your ears.
The one that gives you wisdom and calm,
when dealing with your peers.
And last but not least, don't forget your sack,
full of warmth, respect and love.
Cause for your deeds, one day you'll answer,
to the almighty one above.
