One Single Impression: Endure


Endure was told to me,
be tough and buckle up.

We don't have to endure.
Precedent from the bard,
Shakespeare himself I bare:

... I had rather be a dog, and howl the moon,
Than be such a Roman.
Brutus, bait not me,
I'll not endure it. You forget yourself
To hedge me in. I am a soldier, ...
" *

Hence when told to endure,
bait me not, I'll suck in
fight like a soldier man.

*Act IV, Scene III, Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare (link)
