 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Do not Take Oaths

Above anything,
Never take an oath;
For what it may bring,
An immoral growth.

If you start to swear,
It could be a curse;
And fire to flare,
That could be adverse.

Straying from the truth,
Is being unwise;
Considered uncouth,
To tell outright lies.

And God will condemn,
Anything profane;
That may quickly stem,
Derailing your train.

Let your yes mean yes,
And your no mean no;
Truth as you express,
Going to and fro.

For all that you say,
Shows a point of view;
Makes you easy prey,
As Satan gets you.
