 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I do not want to be a pain,
But I have a lot to explain;
Since you have become too lazy,
Trying to make me go crazy.
For by now you should be teachers,
But you still sit in the bleachers;
Waiting for someone else to start,
So you can silently depart.
Then you need someone to teach you,
The basic truth about the Word;
I am not trying to be rude,
But you need milk not solid food.
It is experience you lack,
Just do not give me any;
In talking about what is right,
For getting even just to spite.
You are still a little child,
A baby who has gone wild;
And still cannot eat solid food,
Because of your bad attitude.
Solid food is for the mature,
Not tempted by every lure;
Whose minds are trained by the practice,
By being a good apprentice.
Looking at you and the devil,
Differs between good and evil;
You must practice while you train,
Remember that no pain no gain.
You must learn in what you were taught,
Then your mind can find what you sought;
You are no longer a child,
But grown mature and are mild.
