I have met truth in the mouth of liars,
  And joy in a season of fear:
Be certain of your heart’s desires,
  And cautious what you pray for, dear.

I have seen love in the eyes of whores,
  And truth in a bully’s sneer.
The hopes of men have hidden claws:
  Be cautious what you hope for, dear.

I have known pain in the jests of friends
  And wit in a drunkard’s tear,
Whatever you wish for— life amends:
  Be cautious what you wish for, dear.
