A Little Bit of Greek



Think in your logos,
Decide on your ethos,
Feel others pathos,
Measure the time meted
to you in your Chronos.
Keep believing and working
One day you will have kairos.
We have a daily gift of doros.
Come to the light
Receive the fagito
While it comes down like rain and eleos.
Accept Christos, keep having phileo.
Okay to eros, in your gamos
Arsenikos and Thilykos.
This must teros,
So I say antios.
