 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Wisdom over Anger

It is not smart to get drunk,
Just like if married a skunk;
You are not able to think,
As well as begin to stink.

Or a fool who starts a fight,
As violence makes it alright;
Avoiding a fight is best,
Walk away to pass the test.

Only fools love to quarrel,
Able to nag and snarl;
Just like a lion that roars,
Catching prey that he assures.

Anger and fools together,
They are needing each other;
One keeps the other alive,
Together they can survive.

Words from the wise are like gold,
For the wisdom can unfold;
With insight as time moves on,
Until the anger has gone.
