Fortune comes embellished with small print.
Of course you get the product that you chose,
Reasonably like the one you saw,
Though, perhaps, distorted by the pose.
Yet of its codicils there is no hint.

Take it all! Take it! For who knows
What might have been? Afoot on any shore,
One who loves the sea can be content.
