The roof's blown off -

   The pipes have burst -

Now the house is on fire -

      But it could be worse.

 

I've broken my leg

     And lost my purse -

'Never mind dear -

      It could be worse.'

 

I've broken my specs

    So I can't read my verse -

But why should I care?

   'Cos it could be worse.

 

I feel dreadfully ill -                                

    Please get the nurse -

'Yes - you look awfully queer -    

     But . . .you could look worse!'
