Fifty-two finds much not to her liking.
Indeed, life is a package oversold,
Fraught with pain and sorrow overwhelming,
The end the same for tourists young and old.
Yet much depends on how the story's told.

The moment is a glory everlasting,
Well worth the hostile heat and callous cold,
Or even all the hatred hearts can hold.
