Poetry Thursday 253 - Advice

The pen is undoubtedly mightier than the sword but can be as useful as a stick of rhubarb in comparison to the tongue.

Think you’re kind?

Why do they feel they have the right?
Comment on everything from weight to height.
No one knows the effort that’s used
in trying the situation to improve. 
Still they think they’re being kind,
but cannot see what’s in the mind.
Look after your own fucking business
let others live within own limits.

Can I give you some advice?
I think perhaps that would be nice.
In your heart are you really sure
that advisor’s motives are so pure?

There are two types of advice,
one is nasty, the other nice.
Both can be hurtful,
if delivered blunt and not tactful.

So next time you feel the urge,
to disseminate your beneficial splurge,
ask, is this really for their edification,
or an exercise in personal satisfaction?

A touch too bitter this week? Perhaps. Then of course you weren't on the receiving end.
