Slogan of Cadogan



A family who bore the name of Cadogan
Was known for this witty slogan
" Enjoy the ride up
and keep a filled cup "
But never ride down on a toboggan.

The six of them in succession
Decided to make it their mission,
So they filled up their cups,
Took a ski lift up
And plotted a path with precision.

While at the peak of their mission,
They made a brilliant decision
To keep their cups filled
Determined and self willed
To avoid a downward collision.

So the great family of Cadogan
Never rode down hill on a toboggan.
Always enjoyed the ride up,
Kept a filled cup,
And this was forever their slogan.

Above all, to be respectful and helpful to my fellow man. more…
