Keep Swimming

Two mice fell into a deep cream bowl. One was an optimistic soul.

But the other took the gloomy view. “We’ll drown,” he lamented without much ado.

With a last despairing cry, he flung up his legs and said “Goodbye.”

The other mouse said with a steadfast grin, “I can’t get out but I won’t give in.

I’ll just swim around until my strength is spent, then I’ll die all the more content.”

Bravely he swam to work his scheme, and his struggles began to churn the cream.

The more he swam, his legs a flutter, the more the cream turned into butter.

On top of the butter at last he stopped, and out of the bowl he happily hopped.

What is the moral? It’s easily found. If you can’t hop out, keep swimming around!
