A word to the wise
One would surmise
Would be sufficient
I wrote this for a county fair in Apache County, Arizona. Won a blue ribbon. It was the first year I was not the judge for the creative writing ribbons.
It is something in my life that is a simple statement of what I have found to be true. Most folks just don’t take good advice. They don’t even listen to it. I remember walking up to the display after the judging to see what ribbons went to each piece entered. My joy leaped as I saw the blue ribbon on my four lines in the middle of one piece of paper. It was dashed somewhat when I heard a man say to his wife, “That’s the dumbest poetry I have ever read.” My heart leaped when the wife rebutted, “It’s you to a tee, my dear.”
Be blessed and write.
