Poetry Month – April 12

I tried to give my daughter a collection of essays, entitled TAKE MY ADVICE. I was met with a ‘No Thanks.’ It prompted me to put the title on an index card. Here goes…


If I do, will you bail me out?
If I do, is there a guarantee
it will work? What if it doesn’t
Can I return it?
Do I get my money
back? With Interest?
By the way, what is your interest
In coaching my life?
Are you getting paid by God?
In little pearls from a special garden of oysters?
I’d like some of them.
How about we skip the advice.
Just give me the pearls
I’ll make my own wisdom.
