KEEP YOUR RECORD CLEAN
By Berton Braley.
So live, my son, that when you start
A fight of any kind
Your enemies can never find
A crooked action on your part.
So live that they may freely roam
Into your past, and snoop about,
And comb it with a fine tooth comb,
And never dig a blame thing out
That's mean or fraudulent or vile.
Though every man is sure to make
Many an error and mistake,
If you have lived upon the square
You still can make your fight and
And never worry, fret or care
How much your foes may try to cast
The calcium glare upon your past.
But if you haven't played the game
Your foes will find your hidden shame
And you will get the bitter blame,
And get it good;
And though your fight be just and
And so it's simple business sense,
Although the pressure be immense,
Although temptation may be keen
I say it's simple business sense,
To keep your record clean!

for wine, and munched the bitter

Beer in several varieties was known
to them also.
Egyptian men, and women, too, did
not always resist the temptation of
so many modes of intoxication. They
generally, when attending a feast,
provided themselves with sufficient
servants to carry them home at night.
