Anyone almost can be a knocker;

So why not try your best to be a txxittter?
With pessimists the world’« already filled.
You can’t expect that things will alwayn suit you:
In melancholy judgement then you Hit?
No. Better fur to help along u little;
Better lar to boost a little bit.
It never pays to join the anvil chorus,
Or spread unkind reports alwait your town;
Many there are to hamper and retard it,
Who do their level best to run it down.
What if it has its little failings?
It has it’s good points, also-hasn’t it?
So why not to the wheel adjust your shoulder;
Why not get out and boost a little hit?
A churlish dog may hay the moon in anguish;
The frog must croak, for nature willed it so,
The mules were placed on earth to do the kicking
(As any good zoology will show)
The good Lord has provided for the knocking,
So if a wider groove you long to fit.
Adopt this as a motto: “BE A BOOSTER’’
And then get out and boost a little hit.
