When you join an association or guild,
Just pause for a while, as your form’s being filled,
And think what becoming a member entails,
Don’t turn out to be one or more members who fails.
It’s not just the cost of your annual fee,
But attending the society, instead of TV.
Of actively helping to arrange the Club’s do’s,
And not opting out whenever you choose.
Don’t say all decisions are made by the few,
Get on the committee and state your own view.
Don’t slate Club officials from behind their backs,
Be honest and face them when grinding your axe!
Drum up fellow members when interests lag,
Don’t say not tonight, it’s too much of a drag,
Or there’s gardening and painting and much more to do.
A society is made up of such members as you.
Remember that comradeship found when on board,
With that and hard work the future’s assured.
So please do your bit, be it large or small
Without you my friend, there’d be no society at all.
