47. Perhaps they will

It is a good day to die,
  Ask your old ignorance-friend
  To die for you.
   Perhaps he will.

It is a good day to study,
  Ask your knowledge-brother
  To study for you.
   Perhaps he will.

It is neither a good day nor a bad day,
  Ask your compassion-mother
  To fulfil you.
   Certainly she can and she will.
