 Elsie`s Poetry


                       THEY ALL MEAN THE SAME

                        `A shut mouth catches no flies` 
                       Can often raise a few eyebrows,
                       It means don`t put your foot in it
                       It`s sound advice I must admit.

                        `Think before you speak` 
                       Is another that`s unique,
                       Put your mind in gear
                       Let your words be sincere.

                        `Don't just open your mouth
                       And let it say what it likes`,
                       Tact should always be used
                       It`ll stop you from being pursued.

                        `Loose lips costs lives` 
                       This helped soldiers survive,
                       No secrets leaked out
                       The enemy knew nowt.

                        Another saying is `Keeping Mum` 
                       Don`t say anything, keep schtum,
                       Keeps you from saying the wrong thing
                       Then trouble to yourself you won`t bring.

                        `I`m saying nothing` says it all
                       For further words there is no call,
                       You can`t get blood out of a stone
                       Accept that this is a secret zone.
