Put on your finest suit,
think of some truly horrific fate,
draw up a list,
take a running jump,
don’t get out of the sun
and otherwise: keep silent, with the right kind of people.

Somewhat helpful:
don’t shave,
don’t read the newspaper,
listen to loud music,
let others cook for you,
and according to your whim tell a beautiful woman: Sorry,
simply haven’t got the time.

Not at all helpful:
to stay in bed,
avoid the gargle,
take up a hobby or
look for a colour-coordinated pocket square,
least of all: no hard feelings,
just grope them.

Ultimately nothing
