Pace tua Wm. Shakespeare

To see, or not to see, that is the question,
Whether ’tis wiser to look it full in the face, or, to turn that blind eye, which is the kiss of ineptitude, and by ignoring, forget.

To flee, or not to flee: that is the question,
Whether’ tis safer to meet with danger face to face, or, to turn and run, and by escaping, live to flee another day.

PC or non-PC, that is the question,
Whether ’tis better in the end to put up with the hawks and sparrows of mind distortion, or to take umbrage against such hubble-bubble, and by exposing suspend them.

Luck-ee or not Luck-ee, that is the question,
Whether ’tis wiser to place the bet, or by repenting, opt out and live to keep your cash to spend on wiser fare.

Wack-ee or not wack-ee, that is the question,
Whether ’tis better to play the fool, or by less joshing, slay them with your wit and repartee alone.

Poetr-ee or not poetr-ee, that is the question,
Whether tis better to rhyme and versify, or by pretence and artifice, produce the direst doggerel.

Misdemeanours – Thought for the Day

When Larking about
And playing the fool,
Please, do be careful –
Make it a rule.

For your misdemeanours,
However slight,
May become life changers –
Yes, they very well might.

You don’t want to be found
Playing the clown,
With your foot in your mouth,
Or caught with your pants down.

For just being sensible
Cannot hurt much;
You are not indispensable,
Keep a light touch.
