When the Going Gets Tough

When the going gets tough,
the tough get going
far away
along with the rough, the buff,
the fluff
and them that just can’t get enough.

When the going gets tough,
the brave scuff their floors
heading for their respective doors.
They stampede like wild boars,
do the courageous.
They become cowardly,
come tough-going days.

When the going gets tough,
reticence rears its ugly head.
Positive folk just stay in bed
west coast types fear the walking dead
Beatles fans won’t listen what the man said
but will get back up a long and winding road
all across the universe
just to escape.

When the going gets tough
good men flee
bad men go free
weak men wee
and children and aged get weak in the knee.

But
when the going gets tough,
when big men get snuffed,
when braggarts leave in a huff,
when cons get uncuffed,
when there’s simply too much stuff to do,
women do it.
