A pep talk lift to rally swift.

Uh-oh. Don’t be in the dumps,
Just because you bear some bumps.
Upsy-Daisy! Off we go.
Life’s a doozy, don’t you know?

Tempest’s teapot is upsot,
Tip-top takes more than we’ve got.
Up united, we can fly.
Two together, touch the sky.

Hold on tight, and trust the wind.
Cringe and cry, but be thick-skinned.
Promise you’ll enjoy the ride,
Once we reach the other side.
